My mom had given Jenna a pillow pet for Christmas seven years ago. Jenna loved that pillow pet and treated it as though it were a living breathing creature. I had recently been reminded of this when I read about her first day back to school after the new year.
Before she left the house, she had made me promise that I'd watch her pillow pet (Fudge) and told me what movies it liked to watch and what kind of game it (he) liked to play. I had actually placed "Fudge" back in her room with a coloring book and crayons. I decided it would fall asleep and continue to "nap" until she got home. I did not play games with it (him).
When I shared this experience on facebook one commenter suggested that I shift things around a bit, mess up the room and tell her that Fudge did it and she would have to make him clean it up. I did not think about it nor received his message until after I had gone to school to pick her up. She grilled me on the events of my day and had not been pleased to hear that Fudge had spent the entire day on her bed napping.
Yesterday I read this following conversation between my niece and my nephew. I think it's hilarious.
Anna: All of them were killed by an asteroid and volcanoes.
Gary: Were more good ones killed or bad ones?
A: I think more bad dinosaurs were killed
G: I think all the bad ones were killed
A: I think all dinosaurs were bad.
G: I think there were some good ones.
A: But all the dinosaurs were killed when an asteroid hit the earth in the 1980's
G: And Volcanoes too
A: The asteroid made volcanoes when it hit the earth in the 1980's. It may have been the 1970's . . . way back then
