Are you ready for a pure and precious story to make your Thursday better?


In Tallahassee, Florida, a six year old boy called 911 because he was upset and lonely:


He told the 911 dispatcher that he was lonely and wanted a friend.

Officer Joe White from the Tallahassee police department responded to the call.

When he arrived, the boy asked if Joe would be his friend.


After a gentle reminder of "how 911 worked and was [only] for emergencies," Officer White said he would be happy to be the boy's friend.

The boy then got to sit in the police car and received a stuffed animal from the officer.

According to the TPD on Facebook, he "now has a friend at the Tallahassee Police Department!"


The community and several others outside of it are reveling at this cute story.

And let's hope that we hear more stories like THIS from the police.

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
