Overheard at the dentist:
Little boy: 'daddy you're not my best friend anymore'
Dad: 'What? Why not?'
Boy: 'because my new best friends are all of Spider-Man's friends'
Dad: 'oh yeah? Who are Spider-Man's friends? You mean like Batman?'
Boy: 'No Spider-Man's friends are Yellow and Pink and Red and Orange. Pink is his best friend. Pink is my best friend too'
Dad: '...his friends are colours?'
Dad: 'I'm not your friend anymore but you are friends with colours? You're replacing me with the colour Pink?'
Boy: 'Yep' *runs off to play*
Dad, to me: '...well, that's different'
I wish we didn't lose our childhood imaginations as we grow up. The world would be a better place if we all believed in the ability to be friends with colours. #childhoodlogic #imagination #friendship #norules #colourfilledlife#mybestfriendispink #dadloss
