The other day we were talking about something or other and somehow the topic of seahorses came up…
I was talking about a school field trip as a kid and something about seeing a dead sea horse in a jar & that you could make a wish on them because they weren’t real…
Kate was all “A’hem…whaaaaaaaat? No, Jill, No. Unicorns aren’t real. Seahorses are real.”
I had no idea! Someone told me as a kid that they were fake and for 20-some years, I’ve believed that. Wow.
It’s like the How I Met Your Mother episode where Barney never learned how to use a screwdriver…and Ted never learned how to pronounce “chameleon” and he kept saying “Cha-Ma-Lee-On…”
I guess it’s true that everyone has something they missed out on learning earlier in life. I mean, there’s a lot of information out there, folks! You can’t know it all. (I am totally trying to justify how stupid I feel right now…haha.)
Is there something you realized as an adult that you never learned as a child…and maybe you should have learned much earlier?
For now, I’m going to go celebrate the fact that seahorses are real. And hey, you never know…maybe unicorns are too!? (Jk, jk. Or am I?)
