As mentioned before and no doubt will be mentioned again, I am mean to my Cousin Emily. She’s a very nice person and deserves a better cousin.
Fortunately she has two better cousins, so I feel no guilt.
Some proof can be found in the following.
me: Oh, so that you remain on the up and up on the “Cullen is Mean to Emily” front, there’s another post up about here at Welltun Cares Presents.
Eric: I don’t get why you’re so mean to her. She’s a perfectly nice girl.
me: It’s fun. And it makes me look bad on site. Part of my mystique.
Eric: Alright, pal, whatevah youse says, but I thin youse wanna be a bit nica to da goil, or I might hafta rough youse up, see?
me: I was nice to her all Thanksgiving, thank you very much.
People thought I was up to something.
Eric: (the best part of that last message? The way I intentionally spelled “rough” correctly…)
me: Y’know… I didn’t catch that the first time…
Eric: It’s fun. And it’s a kind of fun you can only have with language when you know the rules and respect them.
me: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I no I ain’t gotten the better grammer yet
Eric: Ugh. Don’t do that.
