I’ve mentioned Aunt M before. She’s the perfect combination of funny, sweet and a little bit nutty (i.e. nervous nelly) and of course very kind. I laugh so hard at the things she says because she almost always doesn’t realize she’s funny.
“Did you take your walk today?” I asked.
“I tried last night but the school yard was locked so I couldn’t walk the track.”
“You could walk around the block a few times?”
“No, I didn’t want to. Too many stray dogs and crazies out in the evening.”
I laughed, “I can lend you my pepper spray.”
“I’d probably spray it in my eye by accident.”
“You could always bring a fork with you. No one would approach a crazy lady carrying around a fork.”
