I know this sounds bizarre and out there, and maybe just a wee bit paranoid on my part...but... You may recall that I posted a week or so ago about difficult child hanging out with this known local dirtbag. What I read (without her knowing) on her facebook between them mentioned some things that confirmed for me they were sexual with one another. In the email I read at the time they made reference to difficult child cleaning his room (at the house he rents a room). Well, last night, difficult child came out dressed to the nines, very sexy and scantily (granted it was hot and humid, but still...) and her claim was that another friend of hers was picking her up to go over and clean his mom's basement. I asked, "In heels and a mini-skirt?" She said that after she cleaned, she was meeting up with other friends and going out. Before she ran out of the house looking all beautified to go clean a house, she said, "I'll be back shortly!" I went down to throw out the garbage as she was running towards a waiting car. I asked who was in the car and she said the name of her friend, then she rolled her eyes and told me that the dirtbag was probably with her friend and made an ugly face. Well, as they drove off, I looked and there were only two people in the car, difficult child and a guy - I couldn't see his face. I think she just went over for a booty call. When she came blasting in about an hour later, she waved $30 in the air and said, "Yeah, an easy $30". She looked disheveled and her bra strap was all twisted but otherwise seemed normal. Then her girlfriend came and picked her up and she left again. That time I think she was just going out for the evening. Anyway, I've never been close with anyone who turned tricks, so I'm just wondering has anyone here? Does this sound like what I am feeling in my gut or am I just reading too much into it? My gut is telling me that a) she's beginning a manic cycle and b) she's hiding something. I am feeling that this creep is paying my daughter for sex. IOW, I don't think she was just making $30 cleaning his room.
