Zeth "called" his daughter Saylor as Goofy and blew her 3-year-old mind.

Few things in this life are more universally delightful than having a conversation with a 3-year-old. You never know what they're going to say, what they say is usually hilarious and even if what they say is nothing special, the way they say it is too-freaking-cute. I can't count the number of times I wished I'd had a camera on my kids at all times when they were tiny so I could capture the near-constant daily adorableness.

Speaking of adorableness, meet 3-year-old Saylor and her dad Zeth, who are entertaining millions with their conversations on TikTok, Instagram and YouTube. It's really just a dad and his daughter chillin' together with a couple of microphones, shooting the breeze and doing little activities together. It doesn't sound like much, but their sweet, wholesome interactions have garnered them 10 million followers on TikTok alone.

When you see their videos, you'll see why.


Like many kids her age, Saylor loves Disney characters. Here's a brief clip showing how she likes to pretend to have them on the phone:

Got the whole Mickey Mouse clubhouse coming over

But little Saylor had her mind completely blown when Zeth left her with a walkie-talkie and then called her from outside the room to talk to Goofy. I dare you not to smile watching this. (Hold onto your ovaries if you have them, folks. I'm serious.)

I don’t know if we can top this reaction 😂

Her hyperventilating excitement, though. Too cute, right? And the "And he answered!" at the end. I love how kids this age mix things that really happened with things that they think happened, as well as things they totally imagined happening. The lines between reality and fantasy are so blurry at age 3, and having dad play along with that sense of wonderment is just awesome.

According to NBC 7 San Diego, Zeth has been a content creator for about 10 years, but most of it revolved around his love of extreme sports. When he bought some podcasting equipment, Saylor helped him break it in, and when he looked at the footage later, Zeth realized they were onto something. Now he gets to live the dream of sharing his preschooler's cuteness with the world.

Zeth said that they'll continue making videos together until it's not fun for Saylor any longer, but for now they're both clearly having a blast. And millions of us are having a blast watching right along with them.

OK, one more for good measure. Guaranteed, you don't see the last line coming.

10/10. The Mayyas dance.

We can almost always expect to see amazing acts and rare skills on “America’s Got Talent.” But sometimes, we get even more than that.

The Mayyas, a Lebanese women’s dance troupe whose name means “proud walk of a lioness,” delivered a performance so mesmerizing that judge Simon Cowell called it the “best dance act” the show has ever seen, winning them an almost instant golden buzzer.

Perhaps this victory comes as no surprise, considering that the Mayyas had previously won “Arab’s Got Talent” in 2019 and competed on “Britain’s Got Talent: The Champions.” But truly, it’s what motivates them to take to the stage that’s remarkable.

“Lebanon is a very beautiful country, but we live a daily struggle," one of the dancers said to the judges just moments before their audition. Another explained, “being a dancer as a female Arab is not fully supported yet.”

Nadim Cherfan, the team’s choreographer, added that “Lebanon is not considered a place where you can build a career out of dancing, so it’s really hard, and harder for women.”

Still, Cherfan shared that it was a previous “AGT” star who inspired the Mayyas to defy the odds and audition anyway. Nightbirde, a breakout singer who also earned a golden buzzer before tragically passing away in February 2021 due to cancer, had told the audience, “You can't wait until life isn't hard anymore before you decide to be happy.” The dance team took the advice to heart.

For the Mayyas, coming onto the “AGT” stage became more than an audition opportunity. Getting emotional, one of the dancers declared that it was “our only chance to prove to the world what Arab women can do, the art we can create, the fights we fight.”

Three people engaged in conversation at a party.

There are some people who live under the illusion that everything they say is deeply interesting and have no problem wasting your time by rambling on and on without a sign of stopping. They’re the relative, neighbor or co-worker who can’t take a hint that the conversation is over.

Of all these people, the co-worker who can’t stop talking may be the most challenging because you see them every day in a professional setting that requires politeness.

There are many reasons that some people talk excessively. Therapist F. Diane Barth writes in Psychology Today that some people talk excessively because they don’t have the ability to process complex auditory signals, so they ramble on without recognizing the subtle cues others are sending.

It may also be a case of someone who thinks they’re the most interesting person in the conversation.
