Today when I was coming home from a walk four of the girls came to me pretty angry and called me a kidnapper. I inquired them about who I had kidnapped and they told me that I'm the reason why two of the girls aren't allowed to go to the school yard alone anymore. This might be the end of me hanging out with them which is sad but I'm very glad that I got to do it at all. I would prefer it if the parents came to confront me directly instead of just assuming the worst. The parents no doubt think I was the one who went and initiated the interactions with the girls which, apart from saying "Hi." a few times when walking past them, isn't true.
So as you might imagine I'm feeling a bit down today. And for the record, I have no plans to kidnap any children even if some paranoid parents might think so.
