Texas high schooler Ashley Banks was not expecting any trouble when she texted her mom, asking her to retrieve a calculator from her bedroom.
However, when her mother opened her nightstand drawer, she couldn’t believe her eyes.
She immediately texted her daughter.
She sent this picture of several colorful pills to her daughter, which she had discovered in the nightstand.
Sadly, she knew the only explanation for their existence had to be that her daughter was using drugs.
This mom demanded: “What are these?”
“Ashley Carol I will not have drugs in my house. Come home right now. As soon as your dad comes home from California we will discuss your consequences. As for now you’re grounded and you will not be leaving the house, come home this instant.”
However, Ashley’s mom never expected this response…
After having a good laugh, Ashley messaged her mother: “Mom they aren’t drugs, lol.
“Go put them in water.”
Her mom asked: “Why?”
“Just do it, lol.”
And very quickly, Ashley’s mom realized the truth.
Her mom sent Ashley a photo of the results saying: “Nevermind. You don’t have to come home.”
“Bahahaha Mom OMG!”
“Why in the Earth would you buy these? I thought you were 16 not 7?”
“[I don’t know] they looked cool.”
While they may have looked like some kind of colorful pills, these were actually magic grow capsules that produce foam creatures when placed in water.
After Ashley posted her text conversation on Twitter, her story went absolutely viral, being retweeted more than 30,000 times.
Now the world can join in the laugh that this mother had over the “drugs” she found in her daughter’s nightstand drawer.
