I heard one of the saddest conversations late one day as a family exited Disney’s Animal Kingdom. It was one of those things that seems like it happens in slow motion but takes several minutes to finally register.

2-year old boy holding a dinosaur toy: “Robots?”

Mom: “Yes. They are ALL robots.”

Boy: “Robots?” (now sadder, lower tone, slower enunciation)

Mom: “YES! Everything here is fake.”

It was no surprise that at this point the mother was walking faster and the boy was now walking slower.
