- The most interesting thing in this episode was right up front, when Alice said that a good aunt or uncle would be someone who a child running away from home would run to.
- I don’t know if I’ve yet achieved that status with any of my nephews or nieces. I doubt it. But now that the definition is there, I know what to work towards.
- And, hardly any of my uncles or aunts meet that criterion. Though a great-aunt might have.
- I really cannot share Alice’s fascination for / fondness of babies. So it goes.
