Does the word dish in the text mean label? "You cannot label your brother with such a term (parasite) ... "
"He is a plaguy parasite! And yet hardly a parasite. You couldn't dish a halfbrother who hadn't sent you a single word of greeting for twelve solid, fleeting, prosperous years with a term like that."
Walter de la Mare, The Tree, 192?
Thank you very much.
