The first thing I learned as an uncle

Is that people congratulate you for something you have absolutely no control over.

Curious. Call me old-fashioned, but I’d always thought congratulating someone was reserved for when they achieve something which presumably they have some level of control over? Then again, I once replied “good thanks, how are you?” when asked to show ID at a bar.

Yep, we humans do strange things. Remember these questions?!

Oh, and the second thing I learned…

When the baby’s face suddenly goes bright red, it’s time to hand them back to mum and dad 💩.
