Little girl: What are you afraid of?
Little Girl: No. I mean what scares you?
Little Girl: That doesn’t make sense.
Me: I agree.
Little Girl: So, you aren’t scared of dinosaurs.
Me: I am definitely scared of them.
Little Girl: Maybe it’s you that doesn’t make sense.
Me: I agree with that too.
Little Girl: Let’s talk about something else.
When a 5 year old tells you your fears are ridiculous, it might be time to really focus on overcoming those fears. Or, you could be me and take “you don’t make sense” as some sort of complement and continue to fear animals that are extinct. Your call.
