6 Year Olds & Bruce Campbell

Me & the birthday princess!

Me & the birthday princess!

This past weekend I was out of town for a few days for my niece’s 6th birthday (hence why no posts still). Now, my niece Tay is a riot. This is the girl who told one of her grandmothers that she should dye her hair pink when said grandmother wanted to cover up the grey (that may or may not have been my influence, I really can’t say…) and the same girl who recently used “selfie” in a sentence (that one was ALL me – you’re welcome, world, heh). She’s also a total sweetheart; a reading rockstar and pretty much the light of my life (well her AND her little bro, can’t play faves!). This past weekend, however, we had THIS conversation that I thought you all would appreciate:

I have a bottle cap necklace I got at Horror Hound that says “I Love Bruce Campbell”. My Tay is learning to read and she’s pretty damn good at it.

Tay (reading my necklace as she and G’man -her little bro- examine it closely): I love…(tries to sound it out and gives up)…what does that say, Auntie Misty?

Me: Bruce Campbell. I love Bruce Campbell.

G’man: What’s a Bruce Campbell?

Me: Well, he’s a who, not a what and he’s an actor.

(G’man totally loses interest at this point.)

Tay: In what?

Me: (wondering just how badly her mother will kill me if I try to explain THE EVIL DEAD to the 6 year old in very watered down tones…figure it will be A LOT) In movies…and TV…boring grown up stuff though, you’d hate it.

Tay: Oh. Okay.

SEVERAL MINUTES LATER…(a cookie for you if you get that reference)

Tay (reading necklace again): I love Bruce…what was his name again, Auntie Misty?

Me: Bruce Campbell.

Tay: And you love him?

Me: Um…well, yeah, I like him a lot. He’s a good actor. (Easiest explanation to go with anyway)

Tay: What does he look like?

Me: Hang on, let me get a pic up on my phone. (Googles BC and finds a non-EVIL DEAD pic to show her) Here.

Tay: (looks at photo…looks at me…looks at photo) THAT’S Bruce Campbell?

Me: Uh, yeah?

Tay: (looks at me with a raised eyebrow) Really, Auntie Misty? (eye roll, sigh and shake of her head) Really?

The EXACT pic I showed her

The EXACT pic I showed her.

Sorry, Bruce Campbell, but the 6 year old is NOT impressed. *giggles* God, I love that girl.


And from here, just a note to say I finally seem to be caught up (mostly) on stuff and I’m not going out of town again for at least a couple of weeks and I HAVE been movie watching (AIMY IN A CAGE for one!) so reviews are coming and blog reading will actually be happening. And perhaps one day I’ll sleep as well…Catch ya on the flipside!
