On our way to work/school this morning. Lil Miss notices a group of guys get out of a truck with green stripped pants and white tee shirts. Now if you live in MS. Or most can even guess that the "uniform" is county jail issue. Her reaction was wow those guys need a fashion update. LMBO. Ok this from the girl who would just assume shop second hand stores and get more stuff then buy the newest fad, as long as it fits and is comfortable she is good. I said "honey, that is a uniform of sorts" Before I could explain for what she said then who ever picks out the uniforms should be fired. OK I love this girl seriously. I then told her it was issued by the county jail and those men she sees are inmates and are "out" on work release. This in turn brought up the issue of work release.
Lil Miss is a very logical thinker mind you. She wanted to know what if they decide to escape as there is no guards just some guy that works for the city? I tried to explain to her that these men have earned this and it is a privilege, she didn't think yard work was much of a privilege. But then after considering it for a few seconds decided it would be better then being locked up, which led to thinking maybe you shouldn't have been locked up in the first place. Good reasoning skills that one I tell ya.
We both decided that we agree with the "jail clean up crew" and I told her that it saves tax payer money since the city doesn't have to pay landscapers which she said was smart and maybe some of that money should go to the school so they can have text books. EWW yeah watch out world this one is gonna be a pistol when she gets big enough to vote and voice her opinion. I didn't have enough time to go into school budgets and where that money comes from. But I like the way she is starting to think and put things together.
So the whole moral of this post is don't go to jail or they will dress you funny!!! ;-)
Have a great weekend my friends and family.
