21: How To Create The Perfect Family © Katy You will need: 1 large house 3-6 people, depending on how long you want to wait for it to be done 3 cups of pets 2 cups of patience 3 ounces of anger/frustration 3 quarts of laughter 4 teaspoons of trust And last but definitely not least, Lots and lots of love First, open the house, and make sure that it will be the right size for your family. Mix the desired amount of people with the pets, carefully so you don’t damage them. In a separate bowl, stir the love and laughter together. Set aside. Taking each person separately, evenly distribute the patience and trust, making sure that each one gets an equal amount (Failure to distribute evenly may lead to different recipe! Carefully open the bottle of anger/frustration. Using a Q-tip, dab small portions of the anger/frustration onto each person. Lastly, take the love and laughter and sprinkle it all over the house, pets, and people. Let sit until all parts of the recipe are thoroughly combined, and voila! Your Perfect Family is complete.
