What Would You Do if a Poop Emoji Was After You?
Sometimes I have to do a post that has no educational value, but is pure entertainment. Today is that day.
This morning, my daughter, came running through the house to my bedroom. How is it that a 45 pound child can sound like they’re going to cause the house to cave in? Who can answer that question?
Okay, that is not at all relevant to the story.
Upon reaching my room, she said, “I had a bad dream.”
Being selfish and in need of 20 more minutes of sleep, I didn’t ask any questions and had her curl up in bed with me. Self preservation at its finest.
After we were both up this morning, I asked her what her bad dream was about. She said, “I had two bad dreams. The first one was these two doors that were trying to shut on me.”
With a look of disgust, she continued. “And I called for you and you didn’t come.”
Even in her dreams I was being selfish!
My reply, “I’m sorry I didn’t come and help you in your dream.”
“That’s okay mommy. The other dream was about a bunch of emojis coming after me.”
“Wow. That had to be scary.”
“Yes, it was,” said my daughter before she continued to share the rest of the dream. “A giant poop emoji started coming after me. It was running and then it had two wings and it was flying.” This was told with a deadpan face and flapping arm motions.
I said, “Then what happened?”
“It started shooting poop at me. Hitting me in the back. I was scared and came to find you.”
Of course, I couldn’t leave this story alone and had to have her share it with daddy. We went to the bathroom where he was getting ready and she proceeded to tell him the same story with a slight embellishment.
Here was the slightly improved story. “It started shooting poop at me. Hitting me in the back. Then, I turned around and started hitting it in the face and punching it.” Complete with hitting and punching movements.
I looked at her out of the corner of my eye and said. “Really?”
My daughter shrugged. “No, that last part didn’t really happen.”
Glad she knows where to draw the line between dreams and reality!
What would you do if a giant poop emoji started shooting poop at you?!
