Friday, truth or tale…

There was a little girl who was asked by some adults who she wanted to be when she grew up. A bit confused she answered, “I want to be me when I grow up.” Their laughter puzzled her but they were adults and it was sometimes hard to understand them.

Then they asked what she wanted to be when she grew up. After thinking a minute she said, “I want to be tall.” Again there was laughter that was inexplicable. She was not surprised that there was yet another question. Well, what do you want to do when you grow up, they asked? Without hesitation she said, “I want to be a grown up who doesn’t ask questions of little kids and then laughs at the answers.”

There was no laughter just silence and the grown ups looked embarrassed. She turned around and left the room with a smile knowing she had gotten the last question one hundred percent right.

  1. I know a girl who said she wants to be ‘Mom’ when she grows up, and relax at home. She was ridiculed for wanting to be a homemaker.

    1. Sad that she was ridiculed for wanting to be Mom but I do wonder if she knows that there is not a lot of relaxing for Mom.

    1. Adults are annoying a lot of the time. I know this because I was a little girl and now I am an adult so I have experience in this.

  2. This would make a good children’s book! :). IF the adults would read it to them. :). Thanks Patricia! You got me smiling again!
