My Hobo and Me

An overly eager little boy and his hobo, perhaps part of a series: Little boy learns to clean up by washing his armpits with paper towels in a gas station bathroom, little boy and hobo play at building a "fort" out of mildew-incrusted blankets and cardboard boxes in an alley, little boy learns to count...by counting hobo jars of collected urine...I thought it had potential to be funny, but maybe a little depressing instead. Sorry.
