Paul and I were sitting at his 6-foot-wide Gaming Console, “Play Station” as I call it, getting stoned, drinking Apple Cider, when somehow, the discussion turned to Denzel Washington in the opening scene of “The Equalizer”.
He is facing odds that he’s either going to get killed in the shortest film in history, 2 minutes and 28 seconds…..Or, he kills all seven badass dudes in just over two minutes and goes on to killing a lot more bad ass dudes for the next two hours. Take your pick. Either way it’s a great movie.
Paul had asked me if I was going to stick around for a while. So, I told him that I didn’t set a timer on how long I was going to hang with him before I made my escape back to my own den of irrefutable spontaneity when I am writing wilts stoned.
That was what reminded me of that first scene. Camera close-up shot of Denzel setting the timer on his digital watch. I need to watch that scene again to get the actual time. I think it was 2:17, (2 minutes and 17 seconds). At the end of the scene, he was off by a few seconds.
What an absolute genius the screen writer was, or someone else like one of the actors, producers, whoever, coming up with the idea of Denzel setting the timer on his digital watch. Genius!
I explained all that just to say, when Paul was wasting his time looking for that movie, and then ultimately finding it exactly where I told him to look in the first place, (YouTube), in between he suggested “Hey! Let’s watch bla-bla-bla”, I said, “Forget it Cocksucker”, to which Paul bounced back, something that sounded like, “Sault-Caulker”, which I find to be hilarious!
From now on, I shall never ever use the word, COCKSUCKER ever again. Everyone one who knows me knows that I use colorful language all the time, and that there is no intent of malice aforethought in it. Not exactly a term of endearment for some.
Which full-circle’s me to the fact that for a long time, I have utilized the full rights to that “Freedom of Speech” thing. Nixon would be proud.
My two adult children have been telling me forever, to manage my “Filter” better in public, especially with their friends.
Like, going into a restaurant, “Dad, please have your filter on so Tommy and I can enjoy our meal with you”.
Now, THAT was for language that was far less worse than it is today. Words like SHIT, DAM, or an occasional slip of FUCK.
At my age now I have discovered that my mouth really is worthy of getting washed out with Perchloric Acid. My closest friends understand that. My two adult children? No.
So, Paul was teasing me about watching some silly movie (and I knew it). I said, “Cocksucker”, which for me, thanks to my brother Paul and a wonderful Vape Pen, is eternally replaced with SAULK-CAULKER, hahahaha!
Postscript: Then as I finished writing this short story, a close friend/buddy stopped by for a while with some great bud and a wonderful Vape Pen.
