The League of Spinster Aunts

It is Valentine’s Day and, in the spirit of spinster aunts from time immemorial, I plan to spend it babysitting my nephew. 

It is actually quite a good gig. Never mind that in order to get it, I had to remind my brother a holiday called Valentine’s Day was coming up and then volunteer to drive across the state to watch his kid on my own dime. It will be worth it. There is competition for the status of Best Spinster Aunt. (Truly, there are 5 of us.) And I figure, a best defense is a good offense. Gotta start while the nephew is young. 

Happy Valentine’s Day, y’all.

Oh, and for the record, if you Google “spinster aunts” in the hope of finding some great memes, nothing comes up. But there are a lot of pictures of the aunts from Arsenic and Old Lace and ya know…that’s not a bad role to aspire to.
