Overheard at Booth 4: Adults and Dependents

Sofia: My daughter has been on this crazy tear ever since she turned 18 last month.

Allegra: Ah, she's a good kid, I'm sure she's not doing anything too wild.

Sofia:  She didn't come home last night!  She left us as note, saying, "I know I'm grounded but I'm 18 and I've never been able to spend the night at my friends house." Then she also wrote that she wasn't doing drugs or getting tattooed or having sex or anything, but that she was just going to watch some movies and be home in the morning.

Allegra:  And was she home in the morning.

Sofia:  Yes.

Allegra:  On some level you have to see that as too cute.

Sofia:  Too cute?!  She's grounded!

Allegra:  But she wrote you a NOTE!  Kids who don't give a shit what their parents think don't bother to write NOTES.  She was telling you that she loves you!
