Following the unforgettable words of Rui Torres (rip d) “You don’t need to be an expert to be a great artist”, recently, a little girl brought out the artist inside her and wanted to do a collage with pieces of a very colorful paper that he found in his cousin’s room.
No, don’t be scared, we’re not talking about those magazines that teenagers suddenly keep under the bed (we’ve been told), but about something much worse. We are referring to the more than three thousand Mexican pesos (approximately $166) in bills that the artist’s cousin kept in her bedroom and that were the perfect material to make her work of art.
We learned of this irremediable loss because the TikTok user Alexander Cera @alexander_cera was in charge of sharing in a video the sad anecdote that he lived with his four-year-old cousin, who, one afternoon, full of curiosity and a lot of creativity, looked for paper and scissors and said to herself: “today is my moment to create something unforgettable”, and boy did she succeed.
In said clip we see on a table many bits of bills of different denominations that, to be honest, many of us would like to have in our wallets, especially at the end of the fortnight, but hey, let’s continue. On the table you can see cuts of bills of 20, 50, 100, 200 and even 500 pesos. And although we might think that they are toy bills, sadly and with tears in our eyes, we must say that no, they were real.
According to Alexander’s explanation, he had saved that money to fix a car that had crashed and so he saved it with fervent patience. And all for what? So that one fine day the little naughty girl decided to make the most expensive art of her life.
However, the worst thing was not losing that money and that way, but when Alexander spoke with the artist’s parents, they completely distanced themselves from the mischief and, of course!, they did not want to pay him.
Of course, this video didn’t take long to go viral and many of the users, as well as many of you will agree, thought that parents should take care of the not so small prank that their daughter did to her cousin.
One of the things that this anecdote can make us reflect on is family planning. Oops! Suddenly I lost the desire to have children.
