Single and unattached uncles often times are the cooler and more amiable versions of a father. They are often the type of human beings who initiate messy-yet-fun activities that parents dread or wouldn’t dream of doing with their kids. They are the ones who permit impish and playful pursuits of youngsters that nervous or impatient parents would not want to do.
Since single and unattached uncles are often times financially stable and obligations and responsibilities are few and are often far between. Thus, they even become cooler because they have the money to splurge.
And since uncles are older and experienced, they would often be the ones that kids would run to in case they could not discuss stuffs to their parents. They can give worthy and wicked advises that kids need not necessarily follow. And in case nieces and nephews refuse or won’t listen, nothing changes. Kids not following advises is not going to be an issue to cool uncles. Cool uncles remains cool uncles.
Though my monster pamangkins (translation: nieces and nephews) would totally disagree, I would like to believe that I am that type of an uncle. And while my family had a short vacation in Japan, I further my being a neat praiseworthy uncle by accompanying 3 of my monster pamangkins around the marvelous sites of Kyoto and the grounds of the massive Osaka Castle.
Though I was there slave photographer, I had a blast with these three!
