Overheard at Table 4: Sinking Slowly

She hasn't come home for days.

Don't worry.  She'll come back.  She does this all the time.

How can you be so calm about all this?  You're supposed to be her father!

Yeah.  I am.  She's also 23, and she's also always been a free spirit.

But she doesn't respond to my texts.

She never responds to your texts.

You text her then.

She never responds to my texts either.

I hate the fact that you can't make her stay at home.

What do you want us to do?  Throw her in her room and nail the door shut?  She'll just jump out the window.

Then we should nail the window shut too.

Yeah ... I think that might be illegal, honey.
