Reading of a 3rd Grade Mind

Remember the Hippy/Hobo post where Bones said that a lesbian was a female Hobo?

Ringo informed me when I told him the story, "He got confused with HOMO."

OK. I'm so frickin' slow on the take... I never thought of that.

In the great brain of Bones (or Josh) where data assimilation occurs, someone said, 'a lesbian is a female homo' and not knowing what a homo is, one of them thought hobo, and then added hippy.

And there is our 3rd grade train of thought of the day, brought to you by my 7th grader, God love him for being able to bridge those boy thought gaps.

Good Grief.

Kinda reminds me of one of the family get togethers. My cousin, who was about 9 or 10, got pissed at everyone and started calling us all "homos."

One of the older cousins who was in high school busted up, and asked her if she even knew what that was.

"Male chauvinistic pigs."

I can see why they confused the two..

I think it is the Flannel they both wear...

I mean sometimes I see a female hobo and think, what a homo...
