Fact #60: No hitting!

I honestly am trying to be a good influence on my niece and nephew. But it's so hard!

As I may have mentioned, my sense of humor tends toward the violent and/or inappropriate. Here are a few of my favorite things to do, which I am trying very hard not to pass on to my tiny relatives:

  • Pretending to get mad and smash things or flip things over (in reaction to as mild a disappointment as, "We're out of bagels.")
  • Pretending to punch people in the face.
  • Making jokes centered around people's (low) mental capacity or general (un)attractiveness.
  • Whining as loudly and over-the-toply as possible whenever I don't get my way.

I'm pretty sure those are all things you're supposed to tell kids NOT to do. Oopsy.

Well, kids, don't pay any attention to Aunt Laurel (aka Aunt Lola, aka Auntie Muffintop).

Til tomorrow.
