our role models

Iris has lately been adopting Bart Simpson as an example to follow. This drives me insane, with her pestering me to assist her in Bartlike capers, e.g., "When can I smoke butter? I want to smoke butter! Bart smokes butter!"

Losing it in the car one day, I said loudly, "Bart Simpson is a fictional character and NOT A ROLE MODEL, Iris, and that goes for you, too, Anton, with Tony Soprano!"

Anton, who had been sniggering, clammed up at that point. He has asked for a custom "What Would Tony Soprano Do?" bumper sticker for his birthday.

She could have worse role models. You know, like Satan. Or Beavis. But really, she could have better ones too. Sounds annoying.
