definitions of nice

On a Friday morning, Ben was having trouble getting out of bed for school. I'd kissed him, stroked his hair, and shaken him gently. Nada.

Andy came in and decided to lend a hand. I left the room. When I returned, Andy was sitting on top of his little brother, belching in Ben's ear.

"Andy!" I said. "What are you doing?"

Andy replied, "I'm just trying to wake him up nicely."
