So, I lie to children.
And, by that I mean lovingly lead them down the proverbial garden path.
As in, "Suuuuuuure, being a mermaid is a completely realistic and viable career path."
Or, "This crystal pendant I'm wearing has magic healing properties so, you cannot kill me with that plastic lightsaber. Unless you eat up all your rice. Then, you're invincible."
I love that moment of hesitation when they look at you thinking, "She wouldn't lie to me, right? Not about something so important?"
