Last night I had dinner at my nephews' house, and somewhere between the drinks and the main course my 6-year-old nephew asked me
Aunt Lisa, how come you're not married?
Everyone froze for a moment, then my sister began explaining that not everyone gets married, some people are happy to be alone, etc etc. Now being silly, he came back with
But Aunt Lisa, have you ever married a lion? Or a bat? Or a reptile?
and I answered him truthfully:
Well, I did marry a snake once...
He seemed satisfied with that.
