When a dad booked a hotel room for him and his son their hotel made a truly hilarious mistake
Well, that's one way to create some father-son bonding time.
There’s a reason why we love movies like “Big” and “13 Going on 30.” We can all relate to that feeling of still being a kid despite walking around in an adult-shaped body. And while some of us are better about letting that inner child run the show every once in a while than others, we all find moments to allow the pure joy and wonder that come from youth.
And when we do allow for some of that kid magic in our lives, great things happen. It’s no secret that playing is not only good for the soul, there are psychological benefits to it, too—boosting our creativity, helping us cope better with stress and improving our overall sense of well-being.
One hotel’s outstanding gesture of hospitality only goes to prove this conventional wisdom. Even if the staff did it by complete accident.
In a hilarious now-viral TikTok clip, a man (read: man, as in, full-grown adult) named Cole shares the aftermath of a wholesome prank his dad pulled on the Kindersley Quality Inn and Suites after he booked a room for himself and his “kid.”
Cole’s dad must have been in on how the hotel makes little kids feel welcome, because he is all giggles when they both walk in and Cole’s bed has not only a tie-dye fort but a teddy bear.
The fort even came with a list of “rules.” Really they were all for laughs, such as the “defend the fort at all costs” rule…However, there was a “no passing gas in the fort” rule. That sounds like solid regulation, honestly.
Cole’s reaction to all this? Glee. Utter glee.
