Parents just don’t understand.
On June 3, Twitter user Ashley Banks posted four screenshots of an apparent conversation with her mom. The texts start out pretty mundane, with Ashley asking her mom to mail someone a calculator.
Then things turned serious, when Ashley’s mom sends her a picture of what appears to be a bag of colorful pills.
“Ashley Carol I will not have drugs in my house,” wrote her mom. “Come home right now. As soon as your dad comes home from California we will discuss your consequences.”
That’s when things got hilarious. After sending a few “laughing while crying emojis,” Ashley tells her mom to put the supposed drugs in water.
Turns out the drugs were dinosaur-themed Magic Grow Capsules. Designed for children, they’re pill-shaped toys that expand into fun shapes when put in water. They come in all sorts of fun varieties, including sea animals, vehicles, farm animals, bugs, safari animals, and (of course) dinos.
Though Ashley avoided getting grounded, her mom was not amused.
“Why [on] Earth would you buy these? I thought you were 16 not 7?”
As of today, the Tweet has been Reweeted over 34,000 times.
