There’s been times where I’ve met kids and thought, “Can I adopt this child? No, seriously?”
Today I saw one of those kids at a book store and listened in on what was probably the most glorious conversation ever.
It consisted between a little girl and her mother. It went like this:
Daughter: Mom! Mom! Mom! Books! BOOKS! Can I get a book?
Mom: You already have books.
Daughter: Yeah, I know I already have 4 books in the car, but I swear I’ll read those! PLEASE CAN I GET A NEW BOOK PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE.
I just wanted to walk up to this kid and be like, “OMG BFFL?!!”. Then, like, hug her and walk off with her. Maybe even share a library with her.
I mean, I can barely get any of my little cousins to finish one book. This girl’s got a TBR list and she’s like, six or something.
My faith in humanity has now been restored.
