    Generation Pokémon X And Y

    | WI, USA | Children, In-Laws, Nephews & Nieces

    (I am visiting with my family, including my brother, his wife, and their kids, who live in another state. As a result, I see them very rarely. At this time, my nephew is a preteen and loves video games. I also play video games, despite being in my twenties.)

    Nephew: *sees me with my 3DS* “Hey, what are you playing?”

    Me: “Pokémon Y.”

    Nephew: “Oh, that’s cool! I don’t have a 3DS yet, so I don’t have that one yet.”

    Me: “Well, have you seen a lot about it?”

    Nephew: “Yeah, I know all about it. What’s your favorite Pokémon?”

    Me: “Arcanine, but I love Flying types! What’s yours?”

    (This conversation goes on for a while, each of us talking in depth about details and mechanics of the game, while my sister-in-law, his mother, listens in.)

    Sister-In-Law: “I swear, it’s like you two are talking another language!”

    Me: “I know! That’s what makes me the fun uncle!”

    Mom Is Having A Jurassic Lark

    | NY, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (I am about four years old. My parents have taken me to the Museum of Natural History. We are going through the dinosaur exhibit and I am looking over a T-Rex skull placed on the floor and held in a large glass case. I am quite intrigued, my hands pressed to the glass as I looked at the skull.)

    Mom: *leaning down behind me* “You know, you’d fit RIGHT in there.”

    (According to my mother, I got very quiet and my eyes went wide.)

    Love Has Been Thrown Off The Bus

    | CA, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (My mom and I get on the city bus; we move down the aisle.)

    Mom: “Let’s sit near the doors, because when they open, I’ll throw you out.”

    (We sit down.)

    Me: “No, Momma, as soon as the doors open, I’ll throw you out. And then I’ll throw myself out, so I can land on top of you, so you can break my fall.”

    Mom: “So, you really do love me then?”

    Me: “Yes, I do.”

    Stranger: “Aww, that’s adorable.”

    Will Scream Murder At You Later

    , | CA, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (My mom, my grandmother, and I are at [Home Improvement Store]. We are looking at these shish-ka-bobs things that would allow you to cook the stuff on the grill, and a thing to push down to get the food off, without burning yourself.)

    Worker: *walking by* “Are you ladies finding everything all right?”

    Me: “Yeah, we’re just looking for things to murder each other with.”

    Mom: *shouts my name*

    Worker: *smiles and walks away laughing*

    Raised With Love(craft)

    | CA, USA | Children, Friends, Sons & Daughters

    (My son is three years old and when I ask if he can say something new, he always gives it a try even if he mangles it horribly. Some friends are over playing the game ‘King of Tokyo’ and he is wandering around the table being his usual self.)

    Son: *points at the Kraken card* “What’s that?”

    Me: *thinking the Kraken looks a bit like Cthulhu* “That’s Cthulhu. Can you say ‘Cthulhu?’”

    Son: “Nope!” *wanders off*

    Friend: “That’s probably a good thing…”
