Step-mother gets an answer she wasn't prepared for when she asks 17-year-old if she's a suitable replacement for step-child's mother: 'She was never second best [...] because she was never in the running'

For instance, if you asked your parents for just a generic “Gameboy game,” you'd wind up with some blockbuster movie cash grab that was almost unplayable and made by some third-party developer instead of the Pokemon game yo…
