Writer's Block: Eye for an eye?
If you bumped into someone who regularly picked on you as a child, what would you say to them?

"...Merry Christmas, Grandma."


Really, there are some punchlines it's illegal to not give.

For me that would be "Merry Christmas Nana". As well as just about everybody I went to school with from 3rd to 6th grade, half the people I went to school with in 7th and 8th grades, and a few in high school as well.

Yeah, it would apply to a bunch of people from elementary and middle school for me too, though I ended up going to high school and reaching vaguely civil détente with them via ignoring each other.

It's just the implication of the question that the only people who picked on us in childhood are obviously distant acquaintances and kids our own age that makes me roll my eyes.

True story: My husband's psycho grandma used to chase him while holding a dead mouse. To this day, he has a mouse phobia.

Wow. (I'm now amused by the thought of greeting mine with "Hi, Grandma. Thank you for never chasing me around with a dead mouse.")

There's always someone out there with a relative who's even more bat shit than yours.
