Little Girl: Mommy, why did Daddy go to jail today?
Mother: Shh! Because he didn’t pay his child support.
[Mother receives sympathetic stares from bystanders. Decides to talk louder.]
Little Girl: So if he pays his child support, can he get out?
Little Girl: Ok. Good.
Little Girl: But how will he pay it if he’s in jail?
Mother: I don’t know.
Little Girl: Well, can’t you just tell them you don’t want it?
Mother: No, I can’t.
Little Girl: Why not?
Mother: Because I do want it.
[Another long pause.]
Little Girl: But I want to see my Dad!
