Cousins. They’re like siblings, except without the small injustices and disappointments.
Bossy is lucky to live only a few blocks from her brother, and between the two of them, they have created four cousins. Bossy’s brother’s girls are similar in age to Bossy’s daughter, and within minutes of a family gathering, they retreat to a nearby room to write and direct the night’s entertainment.
That’s right, they put on shows. And not just shows, but inventive spectacles.
In the example above, the girls have written a skit that involves Bossy’s daughter as the subject of an interview. She is a living puppet, because her own hands are playing the part of her feet, and the actual hands belong to Bossy’s niece, who is hiding behind her. You may remember this niece by her more common name: Famous Director.
In the photo above, Bossy’s daughter channels Tina Fey. Conducting the interview is Bossy’s other niece, who you may remember by her more common name: Miss Perfect Date.
All is right in the world among the cousins, assuming they don’t pass out from laughing.
