She Seriously Wasn’t Kidding

| Friendly | December 2, 2015

(I’m shopping in a bible store with my grandmother when I notice that they have a little children’s play area where parents can leave their toddler-aged children while they shop. The play area contains a TV that is currently showing a popular Christian children’s cartoon that I remember from when I was a kid.)

Me: “Oh, my gosh, I used to love that show!”

Toddler #1: “I love this show, too!”

Toddler #2: “Come watch with us!”

Me: “I don’t know if I can. I’m a big girl now.”

Caretaker: “Why not? It’s not like we’re crowded or anything.”

Me: *lighting up* “Really?”

(And that’s how my grandmother found me, a grown woman sitting in a tiny chair that had legs three inches off the ground, surrounded by two happy five year olds and watching a children’s cartoon with talking fruits and vegetables.)
