Do you have one?

My MIL was sick and we went to visit. My SIL and my husband's aunt was there. (MIL's sister). Anyhow, dear Auntie is into some sort of belief system that believes in transferring energy from one person to another.

I don't believe in such things - and she knows this. She's always trying to get me to do some kind of exercise with her and I never will because I told her that I believe it's disrespectful to my own beliefs for her to keep trying to pull me into this.... (I respect everyone's religion - but not when they keep trying to force it on me)..... so anyways.....

She corners me and my SIL and try to get us to go in and pretend to rub our palms all over MIL's "aura" while she's sleeping - saying that we will transfer our health and energy to MIL.... SO dear Auntie starts running her palms all over my " aura" and I'm standing there looking at her right in the face. (She already knows what I think about this- so this is just another time when she's trying to force me into it) ANYway, I'm standing there looking her in the eye while she's rubbing my aura and talking about how "strong" my energy is...... In the perfect moment, right when her hands were near my face I went
"BOO!" She screamed so loud it woke MIL up.

Me and SIL laughed so hard we thought we'd pee ourselves. Dear Auntie laughed too but then said she gets the picture and won't force me to do this anymore. I thanked her and excused myself.

So, now the word in the family is that I have a little mean streak in me -- and that's okay with me.

Do you have a little mischievous/mean streak in you? Ever got you in trouble.

  • This may have been a good way to handle it. I do not see a mean streak. I see a sense of humor.
