I see your blood as soil

so we went straight to the theatre after I got off work on friday... we got there a bit before they started seating for our show, so we sat around in the lobby. well, adrian sat. I was standing around not far from him.
we're there talking about some little chick who was wearing a shirt very similar to a disco ball, and I was recalling how I used to dress when I was her age.
then some woman comes up to us and asks if I would watch her child.
"will you watch her for a bit?" and runs off to do something.
and this kid is cute, ya'll. a little morenita with hair down to her waist that curled at the tips... maybe 5 or 6 years old.
I sit her down and ask all the mandatory kid questions - what's your name? how old are you? blah blah blah?
and she's an awful cute kid.
before too long her caretaker comes back to retrieve her.

now I guess I look trustable, but I still can't believe that woman left her child with me!
adrian made some comment about my "unassuming yet predatory nature" a few nights ago (in a totally unrelated incident). it may be possible that I come off as more... harmless than indifferent, but still.
that woman's lucky I didn't run off with that kid.
don't get me wrong - it's not like I want a little person just yet.
but she was awful cute.
