Esther came home from school on Friday and announced that she found our house on Google Earth during computer time at school. She was super excited to see our actual house on the computer. She loved the birds-eye view as well as the street view and also the whole neighborhood view.
In fact she loved it so much that she started asking her fellow classmates for their house numbers so she could look them up too.
And I was like “were you suppose to be on Google Earth at school?”
And Esther was all like “well no, we were suppose to be doing some math or typing program but I found Google Earth and it was like I could see into everyone’s houses and I just could not stop myself.”
Awesome. I’m raising a spy.
So Eloise chimed in and asked if we could go on Google Earth at home and if we could find her teacher’s house and spy on him from the birds-eye view.
How could I resist some innocent spying? I mean duh, I’m a woman. So we ‘spied’ on her teacher and then spied on about 20 more people because truly – isn’t that what most people with no lives of their own evidently do on a Saturday morning?
But then they asked if we could DRIVE BY these people’s houses to see what they were doing right at that moment…because the live action must be better than the Google Earth picture, right?
And I told them that I was not sure I was comfortable with that activity because that seemed like it was crossing some weird stalker line.
And Esther said “well when you drive-by and if we happen to see them then we can all DUCK really fast and be really quiet and drive away really fast before they catch us!”
And I was all like “I think we should wait until your teen years before we dive into professional live stalking and fleeing. Right now we should just keep to Google Earth and maybe Facebook.”
And Eloise was like “Thank you for teaching us all of this!”
And I was all like “If anyone asks, you didn’t learn any of this from me!”
So I’m now apologizing to their high school boyfriends – when you break-up with them…they are soooo going to stalk you. Watch your back. These girls have some skills.
So fess-up – who have your stalked?
