I’m visiting my aunt, uncle and 2 year old cousin this weekend. I’ve noticed some things:
Adults like to personify children’s toys while playing. They will all be male. If you try to call one she, you will get a look.
This happened: “that’s the momma bird. Isn’t he pretty? Look where he is…
Umm what?? How is insisting on referring to clearly female animals by male pronouns helpful to a child at all? I don’t even understand what they are trying to do except really confuse their kid :S
Richard Arvine Overton served in the South Pacific from 1942 to 1945. At 107, he’s America’s oldest veteran. He plans to enjoy this year’s Memorial Day in what he describes as the familiar company of up to 12 cigars and some whiskey-stiffened coffee.
And in case you’re curious, he attributes his longevity to yard work, whiskey and an aspirin a day.
For 107 he’s looking damned good!
if you chew loudly i will consider stabbing you

the worst fuckin thing is
“oh you sing? are you a good singer? SING SOMETHING FOR ME RIGHT NOW”
“do you draw? you do? DRAW ME”
“you write? MAKE ME A CHARACTER IN YOUR STORY”
“you act? CRY FOR ME RIGHT NOW”
“You speak that language?! Say something in it!”
“you murder? KILL ME RIGHT NOW”
The last one seems more doable
Mmm I get “translate this for me!!” even when I emphatically state my reading skills are barely even basic. The murder one would be much more preferable, time to start practicing!
