The Kt we loved

As a parent, I've always believed that one of your jobs is to embarrass your kids. It's gonna happen to them enough when it matters, so inuring them to embarrassment deliberately at times when it doesn't matter just makes sense.

We always liked the Tigger song from Winnie the Pooh, and so when Kt and I were alone somewhere in public—like an elevator—I'd try to get strangers to sing the song with us. When she was little, she didn't mind this; as she got older, of course it was mortifying. It got to the point where I'd just mutter "The wonderful thing about Tiggers..." and she'd glare and hiss "Don't you dare!"

But I know she actually appreciated it. She never took herself too seriously, which is something else I strongly believe in. We're all just faking our way through: no reason not to try to have a good time while we're at it.

Anyway, when I came across the Savage Chickens strip below, I knew it would have appealed to her slightly warped sense of humor, as it does mine (original is here):
