Yedi, a little girl about nine, was looking over my shoulder at my phone the other day, so I let her flip through my Instagram feed.
It was so interesting seeing what caught her attention, and just so odd to see the life I know–friends in America, Thailand, Burma–from her perspective.
She loved the little white kids and babies. She loved it when the pictures suddenly became videos, never understanding which ones were which. After she caught one video, she’d wait on each one or ask me to make it start moving!
She liked a whole lot of things. At first it was an accident, but once she saw the heart flash on the picture, she was just liking every single one!
She was shocked at someone’s post where you could see a computer, three phones, and a couple iPads in the same shot. They were posting on needing to consolidate devices, and she wholeheartedly agreed! She was absolutely shocked.
She asked if every guy with a beard was Stephen.
She loved the picture of the pizza and the African Americans.
One friend is on vacation at Disney World, and she was absolutely lost at the castle pictures. Maybe she couldn’t figure out if people actually lived in castles, and if this is what America is really like? I tried to explain that it was Cinderella’s house, but I might have confused them all the more. There is a chance they all think Cinderella is real and lives in America now! Whoops.
