It’s hard being a kid. You have so many questions and almost all of them are so stupid, and the rest of them you can’t know the answer to yet because you’re only a kid. Rough. So you’re often left to your own mental devices, and those devices are often completely incapable of coming to any reasonable conclusions. For example, when I was a child I had a dream that I only had one eye. I remember this dream and it was incredibly traumatic because I was under the impression that the song “a dream is a wish your heart makes” was legit, and that I was legit going to lose an eye because that’s what my body wanted. WHAT A DUMMY! But a large part of being a child is being afraid of things you don’t understand. That’s why we’re all lucky to have artists like Peter Alsop, who write totally normal and cool and relaxed songs urging children to ask their parents the tough questions. But in a fun way!
It will be tough for those parents who aren’t particularly well versed in the decomposition and cremation processes, but it will certainly be a fun learning experience for everyone. R.I.P. Grandma! R.I.P. pets! R.I.P. me! (Via TheDailyWhat.)
