And she miss me.
“One child is holding something that’s been banned in America to protect them. Guess which one?”
Wait a moment, is that Little Red Riding Hood?
That’s a banned book? Are you fucking kidding me?
Only a couple of variations of Little Red Riding Hood were banned, due to wine being one of the things in the basket.
It means books have been banned
not little red riding hood specifically
When I search an answer in a book as a fresh new librarian. (no kidding, i love my coworkers)
“Don’t worry because I’m going to fight them off.”
During the Nerd HQ “Conversations for a Cause” with Matt, Karen, and Arthur
I love this, so very very much.
Some people would say something sly and patronizing to this girl, and make all the grown-ups laugh. “Ohhh the weeping angels are sooo scary bla bla blah.” But Matt asks this young lady if she’s scared, and she’s honest, and he sees the seriousness in her - because she believes this stuff, it’s part of her universe! And he goes into that universe with her, and tells her the truth from her perspective. He doesn’t say “It’s all pretend, sweetie, there’s nothing to be scared of,” or “Those silly weeping angels can’t hurt you,” or “The Doctor’s got it covered,” or dismiss her in any way. He steps into her world, and promises her that she’ll be safe in a language that she understands.
In my opinion this is the dictionary definition of respecting someone else’s beliefs. You win, Matt. You win so damn hard.
^^^dude, that last comment…so fucking true
