All Aunts Considered

NPR's All Things Considered In Character Series is more like All Aunts Considered today. Bob Mondello calls Auntie Mame, "An Antidote To Social Caution." He says, "Mame is all about trying things, thumbing your nose at convention, taking roads less traveled because they are bound to be more interesting. And if that's all she stood for, she'd probably still be everyone's favorite aunt." You know there's nothing I like more than being an aunt to my own little loves and I hope they learn a thing or two from me about life being a banquet.

(Thanks to Vicki who gave me the heads up on this one.)

I watched "Auntie Mame," so now I know why they're your little loves!
