    Not Quite A Cherry-Picked Suitor

    | OH, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Parents & Guardians

    (My aunt and uncle have a cherry tree in their back yard. My mother and I are visiting them for a cookout. I randomly start hugging the tree.)

    Uncle: “Dearly beloved, we are gathered for no real reason to join this woman and this tree in holy matrimony. If anyone objects to this union, please speak now or forever shut your d*** pie-hole.”

    Mother: “The only question is, who gets whose cherry?”

    Scandalous Pillow Talk

    | Portland, OR, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Children, Nephews & Nieces

    (I am rather flat chested. The women on my husband’s side of the family are quite the opposite. His Aunt T. is visiting, and my three-year-old daughter is sitting on her lap.)

    Daughter: *patting Aunt T’s chest* “Mama! Aunt T’s got PILLOWS!”

    They’ll Go To Hell Before They Say ‘I Love You’

    | USA | Aunts & Uncles, Cousins

    (I stopped by my aunt’s to drop some stuff she asked me to bring before going home. She has 19-year-old twin sons.)

    Me: “Aunt [Name]! I’m here!”

    Aunt: “Hi, Sweety, Thank you so much. So sorry to bother you, dear.”

    Me: “Oh! Come on, anything for my family. Here, I know you love chocolates.”

    Aunt: “Oh, I love you!”

    Me: *hugs her* “Love you, too.”

    (During this exchange, my cousins were sitting there watching TV. Then this happens.)

    Cousin #1: *staring at the screen* “Hey [Cousin #2]? Go to h***.”

    Cousin #2: *staring at the screen* “Yeah. You, too.”

    Me: *confused* “What was that?”

    Aunt: *giggling* “That’s how they say they love each other. Twins are weird like that.”

    Me: “No, it’s cute. It’ll be cuter if they say ‘I love you’ though.”

    Cousins #1 & #2: *both at the same time* “Boys don’t say that. Only girls do.”

    Me: “Yup. Absolutely weird.”

    Never Too Old To Fight For What’s Right

    | NH, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Grandparents, LGTBQ, Top

    (I don’t have a grandfather of my own as they both passed away before I was born. My cousin’s grandfather has come on vacation with us. They call him papaw. I’ve never really called him anything because I’m not sure what to call him as he’s not my grandfather and I’m not exactly sure how he feels about me. I’ve recently come out as gay and have brought my girlfriend with us on the trip. We’re listening to the radio and there’s some controversial story about gay rights being debated about.)

    Papaw: “D*** all these gays! This crap is annoying!”

    Uncle: “Dad!”

    Papaw: “What? This gay rights crap is getting old. I’ll never see anything settled in my lifetime so why should I have to hear about it everywhere I go? I’m sick of it!”

    Me: “Um, my girlfriend and I are sitting right here.”

    Papaw: “You don’t count.”

    Me: “Why not?”

    Papaw: “Because you’re my granddaughter and I’ll always fight for or beside you no matter what we’re fighting for.”

    (He’s since passed away but I couldn’t have asked for a better grandfather.)

    Don’t Worry About It For The Rest Of Your Days

    | PA, USA | Aunts & Uncles

    (My aunt and uncle don’t have kids, so they’ve been like second parents to me and my sister. I’m visiting the zoo with them today, and we’re looking at the meerkats. A Romanian family is nearby, the kids talking loudly and excitedly about the animals.)

    Aunt: “Well, it looks like we know what the Romanian word for ‘meerkat’ is: ‘Timon!’”

    (I stare at her for a moment, and then burst out laughing.)

    Aunt: “What?”

    Me: “You can tell [Sister] and I are grown up. You haven’t watched The Lion King in a while!”
