Conversation I overheard today:
Duncan: Look, Olivia.
Olivia: Haha, Duncan, show mom!
Duncan: Look, Mom. I’m wearing sandals with socks.
Me: I turn to look and he’s wearing white sweatsocks with my black flipflops. Nice, Dunc.
Olivia: Yeah, Duncan. You’re supposed to wear toe socks with sandals. Everyone knows that.
Me: Uhm, TOE SOCKS? With SANDALS?
Duncan: Yeah, mom. You can’t do it like mine.
Me: No, guys. You don’t wear socks with sandals.
Olivia: Why not?
Me: Just… because. You don’t.
Olivia: Well, except for the hobos. And poor people.
Duncan: Wait, what… how do the Hobos get socks?
Me: What socks?
Olivia: Toe socks. Duncan, maybe they just have them.
Duncan: Yeah, maybe they have their toe socks from before they were Hobos.
Me: Before they were Hobos? What do Hobos do before they’re Hobos.
Duncan: They used to be kids, mom.
Olivia: Why don’t they just live in a house?
Duncan: They don’t HAVE a house, Olivia, duh.
Olivia: Well, what about their family’s house? Maybe when they die they can take it.
Duncan: Yeah. I’m going to take this house when Mom dies.
Olivia: No, I want it! I’m going to live here, I’m the oldest.
Duncan: I don’t want to be a hobo!
