Watch: Emphatic five-year-old girl refuses to get married without a job

When my friends and I were five, we enjoyed life to the fullest. We ate mountains of sugary cereal while watching Saturday morning cartoons, stole from the cookie jar, and picked our noses with abandon. 

Things are different now. Kids are being pummeled with the pressure to succeed. Today's tiny humans are setting up Gmail accounts, perusing Utne Reader, scheduling pre-interviews with Yale admissions officers — and, according to the girl in the video below, fretting about how to balance a career with marriage.

Pretty much everyone I know is an utter mess compared to this girl, married people included. Anyway, you guys should be nice to her, because she'll be your boss in about twenty years.
