Melissa began by sharing that Georgette is a big fan of anime, explaining that her daughter will wear yellow face paint like a cartoon hero.

“I think they’re always waiting for me to be like, ‘Wait a minute!’” the comedian said, “But instead it’s like, ‘Yeah, you want a neck tat?’”

She also uses the reverse psychology in other circumstances, like Georgette telling her mom that she had dyed her hair blue.

“She wanted me to be like, ‘This is outrageous!’,” Melissa said. “I’m like, ‘Great! We can shave half of it off.’”

She added, “That’s my theory. if I just keeping being like, ‘Do more,’ they’ll get so bored with it. Now that I’m announcing my reverse psychology, I just screwed myself.”
