Generation Next

My 6 year old niece keeps pestering me to put on F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Whatever happened to cartoons ?

Ask her who the characters are and she rattles them off as if she has been seeing them her whole life! Her favorite ones are Chandler and Phoebe. The enthusiastic little girl chirps to her mommy :

Star : Rachel stands naked in her building and Ross sees her!
Star's Ma : What ? (looks at me)
Me : (Looks somewhere else)
Star : And Ross comes to the building. He starts removing his clothes.
Star's Ma : What ? (Looks at me again)
Me : No he does not ! He just removes his shoes!
Star : He removes his coat too (grinning)

When will I be the responsible aunt ?
