Lauren: Mom, when you were a kid, did you have to walk very far (here, I was already thinking…yes, I did have to walk three blocks to the bus stop AND I had to cross Station Road AND we often stood in the cold for at least 15 to 20 minutes)…to go to the bathroom.

Me: What?

Lauren: You know, did you have to go outside to the bathroom?

Me: Do you mean, like, an outhouse?

Lauren: Yeah.

Me: How OLD do you think I am?

Lauren: So, that’s a no? What about grandma?

Me: Hmmm…I don’t know. You should totally call and ask her. 😉
