My 6 year-old informed me that she felt alien bombs were about to drop on her head last night. I tried to keep a straight face when she told me this, since I could see she wasn’t feeling well.
“What exactly does an alien bomb feel like when it drops on your head?” I asked her.
“They are orange. And they hover over your head for awhile before they drop. And when they drop it hurts. But not like a konk on the head…..more like a big warm blob oozing over your head.”
Turns out she had a headache and stuffy nose. I asked her this morning if the aliens were still dropping bombs on her head and she said, “No. They stopped, Mom.”
I wish I could borrow her imagination for a day. The world seems much more interesting from her point of view.
