banter - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Chatting with him was a sort of verbal dance, one beautifully chaotic, one that makes you laugh out loud feel your heart switching on. It was banter, I guess, but I lived for it, looked forward to it, and would have spent any amount of time in his company that I could have. We were funny together, not so much with others...we just brought that sense of playfulness out of one another.
They bounced remarks between themselves like a kid's rubber ball. They were never sure if they really got wittier as the evening wore on or if it was just the effect of the liquor making everything seem so much funnier.
Their banter was crude and they insulted each other often, but that was the way it was with them, no insults meant you really weren't part of the crew. You had to have a nick-name too, and trust me, it wouldn't reflect your good qualities.
They had a weird type of banter, not only were crude insults taken as hard warming compliments but the unthinkable topics they talked would seem weird to outsiders that weren't inside their precious circle of non-common sense. "Is that you're sister? No way, I thought only ugliness run through your family?"
