My niece told me that I really need to get married.
I asked her why she thought so, worrying that she had some outdated, childish fairytale notion.
Imagine my surprise when she replied, "Because I want another uncle."
I laughed and said, "Well that's the best reason I've heard yet. You're going to have to be patient though, because I want to be sure you get the coolest, most fun uncle. After all, this is the only one we get to pick out."
She agreed, pointing out that her existing uncles are sub-par. One of them is very close to her own age, and the other, on her mother's side is a pretty lame fellow who doesn't really spend any time with her and her brother and sister.
"Well then, you must agree that I need to be careful about who I choose. He needs to be fun, and nice and interesting to make up for your other uncles."
Oh. She agrees wholeheartedly. So there you go guys. You're not just wooing me, you have to be good enough for my niece.
