"When will I die?"

I was watching the girls play with their dolls yesterday when I heard Angie say, “Barbie is getting ready to go to Tinker Bell’s funeral.” “What?” I asked, not sure I’d heard right. “Tinker Bell died, so everyone’s going to her funeral,” Angie said, then proceeded to get her dolls ready for the funeral.

Holiday At Home – Dino Disappointment
