My family has rented a cabin for the end of the month in Oklahoma. Just a chance for my parent, brother and our spouses to spend a few days together. Mostly I’ve been excited about having a private dock out our backdoor. I got all new fishing supplies figuring it’d be where I spend most of my time.
I asked my brother (who’s vegan) if the idea of me fishing would bother his vegan/animal rights protesting girlfriend.. He said no. I figured it would, but I also figured since I’m always respectful of her and her opinions that maybe even if she didn’t agree she’d just keep distance from the dock.
Today she posts on facebook,
“A friend of mine almost lost her dog today because the dog got a hold of a fishing hook that was carelessly disregarded around White Rock Lake. Apparently, this is a problem. Yet another reason to say FUCK FISHING. There are WAY MORE valuable things you can do with your time then fucking with animals (the fish included) with metal hooks that end up doing more harm than you know.”
So now what? My brother was married once and we stopped talking for 2 years because I didn’t lick her asshole enough when she threw random tantrums. So I don’t want to piss this chick off or totally offend her. I’m also a 33 year old adult with opinions of my own. One of which being that fishing is fucking fun.
I like her a lot, but I’ve been waiting for this trip a while and I don’t want to spend it tiptoeing around anyone.
So now what?
