Young Aunt

I volunteer for a program called SMART, wherein I read to two kids at a nearby school (one kid at a time). Today the second kid, an eight year old girl, was trying to tell me about what she thought were her sisters, but I figured out she was talking about the kids of one of her older sisters. So I was like, "If they're your sister's kids, that'd make them your nieces. You're an aunt!" Took me some work to convince her of that, as she thought aunts were only ever the age of her parents, or older. But I was like, "No, it's a word for a way people can be related to each other. No matter your age, if you've got a sister who has kids, and they're girls, they're your nieces, and you're an aunt."

I think I blew her mind, honestly. :D

In other news, it appears my new, functional empathic shield may possibly work better at night than daytime. Still works though, so no complaints.
