80 Year Old Woman Tasered

The thing about being a parent and trying to explain cops to a kid is a modern predicament. You would like to indicate to a tiny person that cops have a useful job in relation to how society works blah blah blah but really, they feel like an army that doesn’t respect citizens who question their authority. Like a group of drunk bouncers with guns and tasers, that’s what many conclude about cops.  So my little girl what can I tell you. If you see a cop should you feel like they are approachable or should you be discreet and move far away from them? (like your father does)

Tiny Lecture


“What’s it like to be a father?”

“Good thing she looks like the mother?”

“How old is she?”

Regular comments after having a kid but the winner for weirdest is “did you ever imagine you could love someone so much?”

Yes I did. I thought if you become a parent you unconditionally support/ love/ be there for the little person. Even when they become a bigger person.

I think their question reveals something about themselves, something like this – “I never imagined I could love someone so much.”

That’s my lecture thank you very much.
