Guests Say the Darndest Things... #2
My Favorite Animal
I was helping out Meeko and Pocahontas when this little girl about age 7 comes up to see them. Pocahontas then started a wonderful conversation about animals which went something like this.
Poca: "What is your favorite animal?"
Girl: "I like cats!"
(Meeko was sad)
Poca: "Oh, Meeko are you sad she doesn't like raccoons? (Meeko nods) Oh, that's ok, Racoon are kind of like cats."
Girl: "And panda bears."
Poca: "How about we take a picture?"
I have no idea how a cat and a raccoon are like panda bears, but apparently they are similar :) ... how about we take a picture instead of laughing hysterically at this wonderful subject. I love kids, without them my day would be dull haha.
Do You Have a Back Itch?
This next story did not come from a guest, but rather my roommate, but fits this subject best.
I was carrying groceries up the stairs & was waiting for Laura to come up to unlock the door when I noticed there was a package in front of our door so I told her. "Oh Logan has a package." She then gave me this funny look & inquired, "How do you know Logan has a back itch? You are outside..." I laughed & said "No, a package... not a back itch"... but I must admit... muffled as it was I can see how she got that & was confused haha.
Today I was helping with Rope for Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade I was holding the gate open for the floats & watching them pass... A boy about 7 was riding one of the floats and was so excited. He threw both arms in the air as he passed and was screaming & cheering at the top of his lungs. I turned to the other girl helping with rope & stated... there is no way he is going to keep up all that energy through the end of parade. Well about 45 minutes pass & we return through the gate finishing parade, & on the sidelines now off the float is the same boy, arms in the air screaming & cheering as each float passes. I must say, I wish I had his energy & enthusiasm for sometimes I really lack it. I bet he sleeps good tonight. haha.
Well, that is all my stories for today. Just waiting to see what wonderful things are in store for tomorrow :)
