Okay – for some reason kids love me – they’re attracted to me. They talk to me, follow me around… It’s okay, I’m used to it… I just go along with it…
So, today was no different… though, I had a VERY interesting conversation with a cute as a button four year old aboriginal girl while I was fishing for crabs on the pier. It went something like this…
Girl – HELLO!
Me – HELLO!
Girl – I’m four!
(and she shows me six fingers)
Me – well done!
Girl – look! LOOK!
(she points to her arm – i come a bit closer for inspection to what she’s pointing)
Girl – I HAVE A RINGWORM!
(i look at it)
Me – Indeed you do! How pretty is that!
(kinda gross really, but whatever.. it can be treated with some topical cream – But… this is where it kinda get’s weird and I’m not sure if it’s her accent or the wind because it was rip roaring today on the pier)
Girl – Do you have a big pussy?
Me – um.. what?
(she then says)
Girl – I like PUSSY!
(my head is running though the library of words that it could be interpreted for… fishing? fish? boating? crabbing? but i cant for the life of me figure it out – so i kinda pause, blink a few times and just look at her – I’m not really sure what to say next.. so I turn around and ‘look busy’ grabbing the pot and pulling it back in – she watches and points)
Girl – CRAB!
Me – Yes! That’s a crab and he’s too small so I’m throwing him back.
(and then the conversation kinda went normal and she left with her cousin, sister or mother or something…)
IF AYONE OUT THERE HAS AN IDEA OF WHAT SHE WAS SAYING.. CAN YOU LEAVE ME A MESSAGE BELOW?
(i’m moderately scarred by it)
