Anubis and Me

Last Year when I was in Vegas with my family, I snapped this picture of Anubis.

The reason I wanted it at that exact moment was the little stuffed Unicorn between his paws.

The little girl who put it there for her Mom to take its picture, raced up at her Mom’s request to take it out so that the Lady ( I will never get used to being called that ) could take her (my) picture .

I said, if she didn’t mind, could I get a picture with her toy in it?

That’s the reason I wanted to take it I said.

I took my picture and as the little girl walked up to take her toy away she looked up at me and she looked a little nervous- I know that look. She thought I was making fun of her.

” Thank you, ” I said ” that made my picture very special.”

Not funny.

Special.

I could see she knew meant it. I loved her little toy with Anubis.

She held her little toy close and said happily, ” You’re welcome.”

From the woman who has little Anubis statues all over her house thanks you to little Lady- still- wherever you are.

  1. Oh my gosh, I love that story! I can totally picture the little girl being uncertain of your intentions but it sounds like she knew you weren’t making fun of her in the end. It’s hard to tell but it looks like it might be a Despicable Me Unicorn. So cute.
