Interrogations from a seven year-old.

Perhaps it is not shocking for me to inform you that the kids in my family tend to be smart. Ya know, because it is so very clear that I am very smart. (The fact that I had to point that out means that I am worried that you all have not picked up on that.) I am the oldest of thirteen cousins on my mom's side of the family. Therefore I get a kick out of spending time with my younger cousins.

While P.I.C. got a lecture as to the better video games for which he should "save up," one of my seven-year old cousins put the screws to me and P.I.C. about our relationship.

Cuz: "Do you guys love each other?"
F.A.: "Yes."
Cuz: "Are you guys maaaaarrrried?"
F.A.: "No."
Cuz: "Why noooooot?"

Silence. (Yeah, P.I.C. Why nooooot?)

Cuz: "Well, are you guys boyfriend-girlfriend?"
F.A.: "Yes."
AT THE SAME TIME, P.I.C. responds: "Well, I guess that depends on what you call 'boyfriend-girlfriend.'" (I believe that air-quotes were involved.)

Well. I think we all figured out the reason that P.I.C. and I are not married.

DISCLAIMER: This is in no way a bitter entry about how I am always the bridesmaid and never the bride. (Even though I am.) This is just to highlight my cousins' hilarity. It runs in the family, clearly.


  1. HA! That's hilarious. It's always the youngest ones that can cause the most discomfort.

  2. Love this!!!
    You should totally get back to him on this twenty years from now when he introduces his girlfriend to you!
