These Things Weigh on Me
A conversation I just had with my husband:
lorihc [2:48 PM] this is really cute, and I get the joke, but I couldn't wear it
al [2:48 PM] :slightly_smiling_face:
lorihc [2:48 PM] makes me too sad
[2:49] sad for the lollypop?
lorihc [2:49 PM] yeah, for both of them
[2:49] let them play!
al [2:49 PM] :slightly_smiling_face:
lorihc [2:49 PM] also makes me think of parents who force their prejudices on their kids
[2:49] racism etc.
al [2:49 PM] y
[2:50] it's not the lollypop's fault that he is a sugary treat
lorihc [2:50 PM] yeah
[2:50] I get what they're going for: he's a bad influence
[2:51] if the lollipop were smoking or something, I could see it
[2:51] but they're playing with blocks!
