Dialogue with Zoe: The Little Mermaid


After various requests from Zoe, we borrowed The Little Mermaid movie from the library. I won’t go into my personal opinion about the plot but for those who are not familiar with it, Ariel has to give up her voice for the chance to meet a guy. Her precious voice with which she sung those beautiful songs. And then, she has to make the guy fall for her without being able to talk. Without expressing any opinion about anything. Just smiling and nodding. REALLY?

Anyways, a week after watching it, this dialogue took place:

– Mommy, when you’re 18, are you little or are you big?

– You’re not little. You’re a grown up, an adult.

Zoe thinks.

– But Mommy, in The Little Mermaid, Ariel is about to turn 18 so she’s not little anymore.

– Hmmm…

– Maybe it should be called “The Mermaid” or “The Grown Up Mermaid”, don’t you think?

[Lousy argument AND misleading title! ]
