I have a funny story but it's from my Older cousins instead of my parents, I still wanted to share it though.
My Mom: Kelsey (cousin #1) you should go to an anime convention with her, you'd have fun.
Me: yeah, we can dress you up like Tuxedo Mask! (My cousins LOVE Sailor Moon)
Kelsey: No, I'd want to be Sailor Moon and have a hot Tuxedo mask! Like you!
Me: Kelsey, did you just call me a hot guy?
Me: OK fine, if you really want me to, but I get to be over the top and ridiculous! *Chucks plastic roses at her*
Kristin (Cousin #2): *arrives late* What did I miss?
Kelsey: *Grabs my roses* Kristin! I got Quinn to watch Sailor Moon! She's gonna be Tuxedo Mask! These are her roses, look!
Kristin: Oh cool!
Me: *Strikes ridiculous pose with the roses*
