"Do you think I'm someone who would do drugs?"
Well, THAT question came out of the blue.
Actually it came out of a darkened car, as the Roo-girl and I were driving to the mall last night.
There actually was some context for it as she told me how many of her friends had Facebook statuses yesterday (April 20) that said, "It's 4-20. Guess what I'm doing."
And then she rolled her eyes and said, "Like I care. I've never done that stuff, and I don't intend to."
She went on: "You know me. Do you think I'm someone who would do drugs?"
I was a little unsure how to answer. Quite frankly, I didn't just fall off the turnip truck. I know that parents don't ALWAYS know what their kids are doing, and I know that kids will experiment -- or more -- behind our backs. And frankly, I know what my generation did behind OUR parents' backs.
So I attempted to waffle.
"Well, I would HOPE you wouldn't."
"Oh, seriously, Mom, not what you hope, but what you think."
"I've never done drugs, and I've never smoked, and I've never had alcohol."
"Pfffffft," she said. "The most alcoholic thing I've ever had was ..."
Wait for it.
"... A rum ball!"
She really does make me laugh.
