Read this, and then blow this little boy a kiss. Four words and he summed the world up nicely.
I hope Mom finds another toy store.
Who would even say that to a child, no matter the gender? I guess this person would, but yeesh! I can remember being urged away from the ball gloves. I had dolls, but I pretty much liked baseball better. I still do. Should people fear that?
What businessperson would say that to a customer? In a toy store?
I can understand completing the purchase because the child was present and obviously loved that pram. But I really hope Mom finds a new store next time…if she can.
Should people fear that?
I don’t think so. But I was raised in a time when fear and loathing was not a part of our daily diet. It was there, of course. But we were taught fear was something to be defeated, not consumed.
Now it’s a commodity…like breakfast cereal. It’s packaged for effect and mass marketed. The more people consume it, the more they want. We’re fat with it. And we’re told that’s normal.
You just wrote a really good essay there, dammit.
