My cousin has gotten into the habit of calling things "stinky" which really pisses his parents off. He loves the reaction he gets from them when he says "you're stinky!" or "this dinner is stinky!" and my mom, with her decades of experience working with small children, has advised my aunt and uncle to just ignore it when he says these things--he's only trying to get their attention.

I've decided to employ the same strategy. In other words, I'm treating some people in my life like they're toddlers.
