The little engine that said "what, no bathrooms?"

After a particularly “interesting” text conversation with Daughter number two I have come up with three conclusions:  One, my parenting skills are really under par.  Two, my child is spoiled.  And three, someone should really check on those hobos.
Here’s the discussion:

Me:  You know, there are days that I wish I could just run away and be a hobo. But have nice clothes, makeup and jewelry.
D2: Nice

Me: I take it you are not up for the hobo adventure?
D2: No. I like sleeping on a bed rather than concrete.

Me: Yes, definitely a downside.  Plus there’s all the hobo on hobo crime like rape, murder, and stealing.
D2: Ew… and no showers.  So gross.

Me: So…. you are saying that the shower accomodations are the deal breaker for you?
D2: Yep

Me: Did you see my text about the murdery hobos?
D2: yea, but no showers or bathrooms.

Me: Well, I have to say that I’m totally against all the rape and murder.  Hobo crime in general really.  That’s a deal breaker for me.
D2: This is getting weird. (as if it started off as a normal, typical conversation)

Me: yep, sure is.
So there you have it.  My child is spoiled, fearless, and she thinks I’m weird – BUT….. I won’t ever have to worry about her running off to be a hobo.... so there's that.
