Oh childhood. When we weren’t so jaded, and so damned cynical. When we weren’t excited to get home to sleep. When we didn’t see car crashes and laugh (did I say that out loud)? But seriously, childhood is a magical time of excitement and endless joy. As Kurt Cobain said: “I wish I was like you [little girl]. Easily amused.”
Redditor u/TheFunnyWhore posted this video of their daughter’s excited rant. Her daughter’s is Julianna. And she is my new hero! Okay, maybe “hero” is a strong word. Idol then. I mean, damn. The last time I got this excited was when I was being born. It was My Little Pony that caused her jubilation. And not just any My Little Pony: But the mermaid – frickin’ – version of My Little Pony. In Julianna’s defense, that is amazingly exciting stuff. Even to a mid-20 year old like myself.
“But no! This! Is! The! Mermaid! My Little Pony one,” she exclaims. “I even said the F-word, this is so awesome,” Julianna continues, “Oh my god, I get a donut and this Xbox movie!”
“This is the best day of my life, even though it is a school day!”
