How I Scared a Random Kid at the Playground

I learned the other day that when you are around random kids, it’s important to watch what you say.

The other day a friend and I were watching our kids play at the playground where we had the following conversation:

Friend: “Ask Siri to tell you where to bury a dead body?”

Me: “What?!?!”

Friend: “Yeah, ask her, it’s really funny”

Me: “Um…ok.  Siri, where can I bury a dead body?”

After I said that this little girl (maybe 7 or 8 years old) came up to me with the most horrified look on her face.

Girl: “Who died?”

Me: “No one, it’s nothing”

Girl: “But who died?” (with an extremely sad look on her face)

Me: “Oh, nobody died, I was just joking.”

Girl: “WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT?!?!” (with almost tears on her face as she ran away to probably tell her parents).

As she’s running away, my friend and wife are hysterically laughing as I am at a lost for words with this girl.

Lesson to adults: when we joke around, be careful because little ears are around us! 🙂
