Bambi’s Mother Is Dyeing

| Related | August 19, 2012

(I am four years old, and my parents are introducing me to Bambi. The movie progresses to the part where Bambi’s mother is shot. At this point, my parents pause to talk to me about it and to make sure I understand it is okay.)

Mom: “So, what do you think happened to Bambi’s mom?”

Me: *after squinting in thought for a few moments* “Well… she’s either dead, or she’s getting her hair done.”

(Fast forward ten years, when I am coming out of the closet to them, and they cite this story as their first clue!)
