The best conversation anyone will have today

Conversations with kids always leave me stunned at how amazing being a kid is. 

This morning, I took my kids to daycare. After I’d dropped them off in their respective classrooms, I went to put my 3 year old’s lunch away in a fridge in one of the big activity rooms… a room that is full of elementary school aged kids waiting for the bus every morning. 

This morning, I overheard the kids all talking about their favorite characters.

“Jake the Dog!”

“Creeper!” (That’s a Minecraft thing, right?)

“Elsa!”

A girl that was about 10 said “Legolas!” and a few of the other kids shrugged it off. I turned and said “I’m a Samwise fan myself, but Legolas is pretty great.”

She must have recognized a kindred nerd spirit in me because she launched into a 3 minute, frenzied talk about The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit and her love for them. She even fit in a  “and I KNOW it’s not in the movies but in the books…” 

I told her she sounded like a true Tolkien Scholar. 

She looked at me like I was crazy. “What’s that?”

“Oh, a Tolkien Scholar is someone who studies Tolkien’s books… like, as a job.”

She got very quiet for a minute and said “You can do that for a job?”

“Yep.”

She looked right at me and said “I know what I want to be when I grow up.” My heart almost melted, the moment was so cute. 

Then the bus came and she left. 

And I have to live with the fact that in the timespan of about 6 minutes, I created a Liberal Arts major. 

Definitive Proof Disney Should Be In Everything

This is what happens when I’m bored in the morning.

I never had this much skill as a kid. I still don’t as an adult. Amazing.
