'um yeah july 4 1917 everyone knows that'

I work at a school and today a little boy came down into the office with me to do homework and we got to talking and he mentioned that his birthday is July 4, and that he and his family usually go down into the states for the day to celebrate. So I said “ha, that’s awesome! then you get all the fireworks!” which was fine enough, but then I added “plus, you get to share a birthday with Captain America!”

And this seven year old kid just

looks at me

and asks “how do you know that?”

and in that moment I realized that my life choices are not everyone’s life chocies the end.
