During dinner last night Sam slowly chewed on his hot dog while staring into space. I wave my hand in front of him until I catch his attention.
“What’re you thinking about, buddy?” Steven asks.
“Ohh, I’m just trying not to think about a video I saw,” Sam replies.
“Why don’t you want to think about it?”
“It was just the WORST THING EVER. I saw it on YouTube Kids, and I don’t want to think about it because it was the WORST,” he answers.
Steven and I glance at each other across the table. “Uhh, well now I’m a little curious,” muses Steven, “Can you tell us anything about it?”
“But I don’t want to think about it!” Sam protests. “It was absolutely horrible!”
Steven looks as concerned as I’m feeling. Sometimes weird things can sneak through YouTube Kids’ filter. Oh Lord, what has he seen?
“Well buddy, now you’re going to have to tell us, or else we’re going to worry,” I explain.
Sam mulls over that for a second. “Well, okay, but it’s horrible.” He takes a deep breath. “It’s a video about Halloween and there are kids and they eat too much candy and then they THROW UP!!!”
