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 TBRĀ list and she’s like, six or something.

My faith in humanity has now been restored.

I COMEZ TO EAT U NAO.

Some commercials really freak me out. Tampon commercials being one, but there’s also something else almost as freaky and that’s pet food commercials. You know, like the ones where people are having a conversation with their pets as if they’re human beings. Well, I don’t know if it’s a conversation exactly, but it’s just awkward and flippin’ weird to watch. (I also have no idea why I just used the word “flippin'”, since it makes me feel like I’m talking about mermaids.)

But then, while visiting a friend, I saw this:

Okay. I get you love your Miss Princess Furball and Mr. Whiskers, but seriously? Can’t you just like, give them a bite of tuna or something?

What advertisements/commercials freak you out?
