Insincerity and deceit

When we were about 5-10 years old, my late grandmother repeatedly told my sister and me that she loved us more than our cousins.  To avoid hurt feelings, however, she swore us to secrecy.

Apparently, she told the same thing to my two uncles' children.  Unfortunately, one of my cousins was not able to keep the secret and gleefully told my sister and me of our grandmother's pronounced favoritism.

I say the same things to my children (3). Except I do it to all of them at different time in private and public.

My grandfather would tell all of his grandchildren, "I love you most." We all knew it, though. I miss my Granddad.
