Listening to: I'd Rather Be High (Venician Mix) - David Bowie
Playing: Mass Effect 3
So, a few years ago I was at Wal-Mart and there were those outlandish fushigi crystal balls on the impulse buy section at the check out counter, you know, those awesome crystal balls to start to learn how to contact juggle? If you don't know what I am talking about, please youtube or google it... Anyway, it was a thing, and I said "what the hell" and bought one for spits 'n giggles and because who the hell doesn't want to be the goblin king?!
Well it is sitting on a clay Inuyasha hand that I made in the 8th grade, and just sitting there as one of my prized possessions, you know and, of course, Willow is over my house watching Labyrinth. While she was watching, she saw the dreaded crystal ball.
Willow - *GASP* Cici. What's this?
Me - What is that Willow?
Willow - It's a crystal ball.
She could NOT believe that I had one.
Willow - Where did you get this?
How could I resist?
Me - The Goblin King gave it to me.
Willow - Really?
She looked around for him.
Willow - Is he here?
Me - Nope.
She got really sad.
Willow - Where is he?
Me - Back in the Goblin City, duh.
Willow - With Sarah?
I tried to hold back the tears. I was so proud.
Me - Yes. With Sarah and Toby.
Willow - Are they on a play date?
Me - Yeeeah. Yeah. A play date! Exactly.
Then she got really giddy.
Willow - Can we go?!
The sad thing was she was serious. How do I answer that?!
Me - Where? To the Goblin City? No, of course not.
She got really sad again.
Willow - Why not, Cici.
Me - It's underground, remember? We're up here. There down there. How are we supposed to get there.
Willow - Dig a hole!
When did she get so damn smart?
Me - With what? I don't have anything in my room for that.
Willow - A shovel. We can ask Mimi (grandma) for one.
Me - We don't have a shovel.
Which was not a lie. I really don't have one lol.
Willow - Aww
She sulked for a good 10 minutes staring at the crystal ball. She reeely wanted to go.
Me - We will go one day, okay?
She looked at me.
Willow - really?!
She never put down the crystal ball....
You know what this means? I now have to take her to the Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade in LA when she's older lol.
