Wisdom from Squish
Squish (while getting her hair brushed): I don't think television really knows what goes on in television.
Squish: Well, we were watching a movie where a girl got famous writing, and she was on television in, like, a week. That doesn't really happen.
Me: No, that's not realistic.
Squish: Right? It's like the people who write for television never look to see how it works. You know what else isn't realistic?
Me: Hit me with it.
Squish: The girl waiting in the tower for the boy to come. Why doesn't she get out of the tower and chase the boy.
Me: Because sometimes boys get scared when they're chased.
Squish: But why have the tower at all? Why can't she just ask him to the movies!
Me: That's a very good point!
Squish: I mean, at least the Disney Princesses have some bad luck, and they have to work at it.
Me: Because stories would be boring without conflict.
Squish (very bored now): Yes, mom, I know.
Me: Okay, go get a rubber band for your hair.
Squish: Okay. *skips away*
Y'all, that's my little girl. *weeps with pride*
