(laughing) Yeah yeah Well I mean with other people who are of Mexican descent can you? Brandon: Yeah they always talk to me in Spanish… and I’m just like I just don’t know and it’s tough cuz like my father-in-law like, he doesn’t speak English and I don’t speak Spanish so our relationship is harder especially since… I don’t know if, uh… talk much, uh… with you about him He is very much like a man’s man And I’m not… *laughter* We were at the beach, he wanted to do he wanted to, um, I don’t know just kinda do something fun just the two of us so he was like come here, come here, we got like life jackets and we got a kayak and we are gonna go out to the ocean I am not crazy ’bout the ocean don’t like things touching my feet don’t like tide taking me, and I was like, on a kayak [stuttering] I… I just wasn’t crazy about it. But I was like you know, we’re just going to kinda like chill a little bit. But we kept paddling… and paddling… and paddling. And we pass like, the buoy, and I was like… he likes me… …but… Gus: Hang on.
[laughter] Brandon: Exactly. The exact cliche when the father-in-law takes you out… …and could kill you! And like threaten you, and I- I would-
wouldn’t be able to do anything. I’m not going to swim back! I’m not going to fight waves! Gray: Or – or he might just be testing you, and if you can make it back to shore, you’re worthy… ya know. Brandon: I don’t know if I was worthy, but… It’s – it’s a small kayak.
He could easily just like… push me out. And then I almost drowned him. Burnie: You drowned him?! Brandon: I almost drowned him. Burnie: What’d you do? Brandon: Uhh, well… This was later, he was on an alligator… Gray: Wait… Hang on. Brandon: He was on a floating toy alligator. Gray: Ooo-kay. Brandon: And it was like… the whole family and I was with Paula and I was like “Ohh, you know- maybe it would be kinda fun if we like- we you know… …wrestle, or like… flip it, and take the alligator, and it’ll be fun.” Burnie: What!? Brandon: Aaand, I flipped it, and I don’t know! Burnie: …to your father-in-law!? Brandon: Yeah! Like, “Ohhh, my son-in-law flipped me! Ohhh, you!” But I don’t know if he was like, locked into it, and I flipped him. Aaand I… he- he didn’t disengage! He was still locked in with his legs and his arms… And was there for like… 10 seconds! And I was like… Burnie: The alpha move. …”Ohhh my god!” Burnie: So the end of the story is he died by… Brandon: He’s alive! Burnie: He didn’t – He saved his life by letting go. Brandon: He’s – no, I pulled… I – I flipped it back. Burnie: Really? Brandon: Yeah. Burnie: He won! He won. Brandon: You think it was a power move? Burnie: Fuck yeah it was! He could have let go of that alligator any time he wants to!
