I have to admit, something like this would put me off rather severely:
I had just walked upstairs, into my bathroom, when I heard someone say “la la la la la *giggles*”. Hmmm, that sounds like my daughter’s My Little Pony doll. But … why in the hell is it talking without anyone touching it?
“I love youuu!” it said afterwards.
Now there’s a phrase I don’t hear too often, especially out of the blue. Or, in this case, the pink:
I walked into the hummingbird’s room to investigate and saw that the pink pony was mostly under her bed with just the legs sticking out.
UH UHH, I’ve seen Chucky too many times and there was no way in hell I was going to bend down and pull that damn doll out from under the bed.
I looked at the picture of the pony in question. It’s a G3 So Soft Newborn Pinkie Pie from 2007. Wouldn’t hurt a flea — not deliberately, anyway.
Then again, I keep the batteries out of my own Twilight Sparkle Animated Storyteller, lest she start blabbing in the middle of the night.
