I tend to act as a foil to balance out whomever I’m around, which means that if there’s irresponsible behavior going on I feel the need to Mother you IMMEDIATELY and it is IMPERATIVE and I am CONCERN and must be a mother duck. You’re my child now. Child no. Child take that fork out… Of the electrical socket…. No, sweetie, please, I love you and want you alive! Okay?
On the other hand, if you are being adultish and insisting on doing things The Right Way, I will often counter this by doing a SCREW THE RULES, I HAVE HUMOR thing, and will basically try to make jokes and push buttons and also the limit.
There’s certain instances where, instead, I’m just ‘lolyeah that me’ or ‘Actually, I, an reasonable human being, am also quite fond of rules, and am weary of this foolishness’, and….. I don’t even know what to say about that. I cannot tell you when it will happen. I don’t know why it does. I’m either bouncing off of you agreeing with you, there’s not much in between
