Cheeky tips to handle your #Hamilkid
Expect swooning over the bill printed with the face of the $10 founding father.
Use it to your advantage to get chores done. You might even be able to trade one for an Andrew Jackson—aka Harriet Tubman.
Hamilkids may take to sliding into a room, asking “What’d I miss?”
Smile and enjoy. After all, it’s a much better greeting than “Wazzup?”
Freak-outs over a Hamilton Inn, the town of Elizaville, or Lafayette Square are all symptoms of the obsession.
And guess where a Hamilkid wants to attend college? Hint: it’s not Washington University. On long car trips, turn their passion into a game: Who can spot the most Hamilton-related geographical points of interest? Yorktown! Washington Bridge!
Giggling and whispering about the Reynolds Pamphlet also come with the territory.
This is a great opportunity to teach them about the birds, the bees, and the two-timing losers.
Beware the advent of the British accent.
Hamilkids often will employ overdramatic British accents when using the words “push,” “shove,” or the phrase “you belong to me.” Since this gets very annoying very fast, start doing the same, and a Hamilkid will stop instantly.
