When your relatives ask, your kids could follow “yes” with “indeed.” LOL!
And “no” with “way.” That should work. LOL!
I don’t like “Mr. Starlin.” It feels weird. But my young students usually call me that. So I tell them if they must call me Mr. to say Mr. Mark. Or “Coach.” I like Coach better. It’s not really an age thing. I am fine with my age. I embrace it. It just feels weird to me to be called Mister. Maybe it sounds too “grown up.” I don’t feel like a grown up. LOL!
I won’t call you Ma’am if you don’t call me Mister. Deal?
