playground dialogue

Posted in he said she said, how was your day? by enisea on 08/07/2012

N: So, what do you like doing?
A: I like rockstars, famous people, fast music, singing, and dancing.
N: How old are you?
A: Seven.

One difference we often forget to account for between young people and younger people… is honesty.
Sure, you looked unimpressed upon her liking of famous people – but face it, from hollywood to benevolence, we all have a favourite famous person, or few.  We are also attracted to talent and those who are gifted with particular talents; we all appreciate artists of some form or manner – from rockstars to painters.  What’s more we are all entitled to personal preferences in music – with singing and dancing being a universal joy. 

So why, upon first hearing/reading her response, did we flinch and judge her?
