I taught Charlie to raise his little fist in solidarity

He was looking at pictures of Walmart workers with me and asking questions. I’m indoctrinating my nephew — one opportunity at a time.

Why? Because I’m the best aunt ever:

Charlie: “What’s that?”
Me: ”People getting ready to strike.”
Charlie: “What’s that?” 
Me: ”What happens when bosses are mean.” 
Charlie: “Oh.”
Me: “Should bosses be mean?”
Charlie: “No!”
Me: “Do you stand in solidarity?”
Charlie: “Okay!” 
Me: *raises fist* “Solidarity!” 
Charlie: *raises first* “Solly-dary!” 
Me: “Do you stand with workers?” 
Charlie: “Okay!”

My work here is done. For now.
