Fail To Answer

| CA, USA | Aunts & Uncles, Children, Nephews & Nieces

(I am 40 years old, unmarried, no kids. I am playing with my 5-year-old nephew while my 70-year-old mother looks on.)

Nephew: “Auntie [My Name], are you married?”

Me: “No.”

Nephew: “Why not?”

Me: *sarcastically* “Because I am a failure as a woman.”

Mom: *taking me seriously* “[My Name], don’t say that!”

Nephew: “Haha, you fail!”

(Kids crack me up.)

Nephew: “[My Name], I love you.”

Me: “Aww, that’s so sweet, [Nephew]. I love you, too.”

Nephew: *tugs on my husband’s sleeve* “I told [My Name] I love her.”

Husband: “I know. That’s sweet of you.”

Nephew: “No! You’re supposed to say ‘Ew, gross!’”

Me: “Oh… how old do you think old is?”

Niece: *thinks* “Twenty.”

Me: “How old do you think I am?”

Niece: “Twenty.”
