How to Parent in Miami

Scene: My family and I are sitting by the pool at my apartment building. It is time for my one-year old nephew Ronan to eat.

Mom: “I have to go upstairs and warm Ronan’s bottle.”
Me: “Just warm it in the hot tub.”

Mom cocks head. Looks incredulous. Takes bottle over to hot tub and dips it in. Comes back two minutes later.

Me: “That’s how we do shit here.”

...and that's the story of the youngest person to get an STD from a hot tub.

Just kidding, that's awesome.

The only reason I did warm the bottle in the hot tub was because you said to and "when in Rome, do as the heathens,I mean, Romans do."

Did you take a swig of your Corona with a snarled lip (making that suction noise, also) after you said this? Perhaps while wearing BluBlockers?

I dunno. That's just how I'm picturing it.
