How to get anything you want

RE:  How to get anything you want (with very little effort)

#1 – Try to look impossibly cute

#2  – Laugh and giggle a lot while swimming in your aunt’s pool (if you don’t have an aunt or a pool – see point #1 and repeat often)

#3 – Listen closely since what I am about to tell you is critical.   When your aunt (or any other sucker) makes you a special treat like a mini-sundae with M&Ms,  you must turn around, gently scoot your padded dupey into her lap and open wide for a spoonful.   This maneuver is guaranteed to illicit the following response,  “OH MY GOD,  YOU CAN HAVE ANYTHING YOU WANT!”

#5  – Brace yourself for the barrage of kisses

#4 – Now you’ve got her.  Keep a short list of demands in the pocket of your cargo pants so you are prepared when the opportunity presents itself.
