    No Falling Out With This Couple

    | Allentown, PA, USA | Siblings

    (My sister is messing around with the character customization in Fallout 4 to see what all the options are and has accidentally created the most hilariously terrifying video game character in existence.)

    Character’s In-Game Wife: “That’s the face I fell in love with!”

    Sister: “…You’re a real trooper.”


    | MT, USA | Children, Nephews & Nieces

    (My husband, son and I are eating dinner with my mother-in-law and two nieces. The youngest girl is not quite three and is still learning words, and is sitting next to my husband.)

    Youngest Niece: “Uncle?”

    Husband: *turning to her* “Yes, kid?”

    Youngest Niece: *pointing at his chest where his slouching has encouraged a moob despite otherwise being fit* “Boobie?”

    Husband: *flabbergasted, and somewhat self-conscious* “Uh, uh, um… It’s stored energy!”

    A Beastly Set Of Numbers

    | AZ, USA | Siblings

    (I’m sitting in my room next to my little sister. She goes on to asking me random questions, like my favorite color, etc.)

    Sister: “What’s your favorite number?”

    Me: “Six.”

    Sister: “What is your other favorite number?”

    Me: “Just six.”

    Sister: “What are all of your favorite numbers?”

    Me: “Six, six, and six!”


    Me: “No, wait!”

    Very Good At Being Bad

    | VA, USA | Children, Sons & Daughters

    (We’re eating Chinese take-out for dinner.)

    Six-Year-Old: *holding up an egg roll* “Are these bad for me?”

    Me: “Yes.”

    Six-Year-Old: “Yummy!” *takes a large bite*

    Cheese And Say Smile!

    | VA, USA | Sons & Daughters

    (My nearly three-year-old son is obsessed with stealing my dry erase markers. He hasn’t been able to get them open yet, but I still don’t let him have them. Once again, he has made off with two of them and takes them into the living room.)

    Me: “No, [Son], you can’t have those.” *I take the markers and put them away*

    Son: “WAAAAHHHHH!!!!” *stomps around for added effect*

    Me: “Oh, I know. I’m so mean.” *I go get some string cheese from the fridge and open it for him* “Here, have some cheese.”

    Son: *immediately stops crying, smiles, and yells* “CHEESE!” *happily munches*

    (It’s good to know I can buy my son’s love with cheese.)

    A Monstrous Turn Of Events

    | ON, Canada | Nephews & Nieces

    (My three-year-old nephew and his mom are talking.)

    Nephew: “Mummy, you know that you are so beautiful?”

    Mom: “Thanks, [Nephew]!”

    Nephew: “Yeah, you don’t look like a monster.”
