‘Blood! Blood! Blood! And then death!’
The bunny screamed as she pulled up rolls of red ribbon and then squished a bit of Ketchup to show more blood. She then froze for a second to show death before ‘coming back to life’ to continue her drama.
Ikem sat transfixed as he watched Zootopia. He followed the tiny bunny keenly as she went on to achieve her dreams of becoming a Police Officer. Right there and then, a new dream was birthed.
Here comes the school project and project defence.
Me: Ikem, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Ikem: A Police Officer!
Ikem: To help the good guys, to catch the bad guys, to drive a Police Car and own a Police Gun.
Me: Ye! What happened to wanting to become a Pastor?
Project done, defence done. Uncle Too comes visiting some weeks later.
Uncle Too: Ikem, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Ikem: I want to be a Police Officer.
Uncle Too: When I was your age, I wanted to become a Police Officer…
Ikem: But then you became an Uncle
Uncle Too: 😀 Well… You are going to be an Uncle too
Ikem: Nooooooo! I don’t want to be an Uncle, I want to be a Police Officer!
