She's my favourite, really.
(Don't tell the nephews!)
Anyhoo, she has a pottery bench for sale that she built at school. She wanted to know if I knew anyone that wanted to buy it. If I did, then SHE would buy it, and hopefully sell it at a profit. But there was no point in HER buying it, if she couldn't then sell it.
She doesn't have any personal need for a pottery bench.
Amusingly for her, her favourite aunt (don't tell the others) is bottom-lip-deep in sociological studies. And also a little protective of her favourite niece.
There was kind of a pause on her end.
I could feel that her one eyebrow was raised, waiting for an explanation.
She knows I'm weird.
It's why she loves me.
I felt this was an important teaching moment.
My mistake. No child labour happening here.
So I switched sides.
Like I said - she's awesome. I adore her.
Happy Outrage-Free Friday to you!
