more about strangers

what it is: more about strangers
where i found it: from the mouth of babes

I recently posted about a lawn umbrella that my kid mistook for a stranger. As we continue to make sense of what a stranger is, I was asked the following questions yesterday:
1) Do strangers not have heads?
When I explained that most strangers have heads I was asked:
2) Do strangers have heads but not faces?
Clearly strangers are inherently horrifying beings.

The first thing my kid said yesterday when he woke up (before the sun rose), pointing to the ceiling, was "there is an alien right there taking a trip into the darkness".

I guess I shouldn't have taken so much acid as a teenager after all.
