How To Train Your Dragon Loving Child

(I’m a customer at a bookshop. As I’m browsing, I overhear a nearby mother spending five minutes patiently explaining to her young daughter that dragons aren’t real. The daughter is only about 3 or 4.)

Mother: “For the last time, they’re just made up! For fun! They don’t actually exist!”

Daughter: “But they’re in this book! Look!”

Mother: “Oh, for… I’ve already explained this. Come on, we’re leaving.”

Daughter: “Can I buy the dragon book?”

Mother: “Of course not! That’s the last thing I need.”

(They make their way over to the cash register, where the mother pays for a few books. The daughter looks up at the salesman with big eyes.)

Daughter: “Excuse me, mister. Are dragons real?”

Salesman: *leans in close* “Well, that’s what we have to tell you.”

(The daughter’s face lights up instantly and the mother lets out an exasperated sigh. That man just made my day, and the day of a tiny little girl who loves dragons.)
