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.
