Babbling Not Allowed, Luckily for You.

A lot of my conversations are texted, mainly because sometimes it's nearly impossible to talk on the phone and hear anything the other person is saying. It's loud around here. Very loud.

Facebook I.M.'s with my babiest sister:

Hannah: I have ur children.

Erin:Good.

Hannah: I came into ur house and took ur children.

Erin:Good.

Erin:Now go to bed.

Facbook I.M. with my babiest brother Ben, right after his recent bad breakup:

Ben: I just don't know what to do, one minute she's crying cause I won't spend the night with her the next she's breaking up with me.

Erin: Get over it. Read a book.

Ben: I bet you wouldn't be thinking that way if it was Jeremiah.

Erin: Bitches ain't shit but hoes and tricks.

Texts with Jeremiah while I was attempting to shovel the snow:

Erin: How the heck do you get all the snow that's packed into the sidewalk?

Jeremiah: manual manipulation.

Erin: I'll show you manual manipulation...or something.

Texts with Jeremiah while I'm making dinner:

Erin: Can u bring home milk?

Jeremiah: ok.

Erin: Are you mad?

Jeremiah: No. why?

Erin: You sound mad.

Texting Jeremiah while he's working:

Erin: How's it going, Mister?

Erin: I found these free mp3s on amazon this morning. Classical music.

Erin: Your son just had the biggest shit in the history of big shits.

Erin: What do you want for dinner?

Erin: Tacos?

Erin: Pizza?

Erin: Fried Rice?

Erin: Nevermind. Max doesn't want any of those things.

Jeremiah (finally): It's always about Max, isn't it?

Texting with my best friend, Mindi, home for the holidays:

Mindi: Going to be late for dinner. Around 6 now.

Mindi: And maybe by myself:

Erin: I see. Ok. What's Ish going to do?

Mindi: He's thinking about sitting around the house and being a bum.

Erin: He can sit around here and be a bum.

Mindi: I know.

Erin: Ok.

Erin: You can stay with him if his majesty isn't going to permit your visit.

(no answer)

Erin: I just looked at that and it sounds mean, I didn't mean for it to be.

Mindi: I know.


Texting my Mom:

Erin: Mom.

Erin: Mom.

Erin: Mom.

(home phone rings)

Erin: "Hello?"

Mom: "Erin, I don't have unlimited text messaging and I'm at home. What the heck do you want?"

Erin: "Nothing, really.....what are you up to?"

Logical Libby said...

I hate it when someones sounds mad while texting... It's all about the intonation.

Beth said...

If I didn't text, there would be days when I didn't get to speak to my children at all.

These are hilarious conversations.

Mr. Condescending said...

I liked the are you mad one. Its true you really can tell how someone is feeling through their texts!

Secretia said...

I never text, it's the only vice I haven't tried :)

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

"ok." does sound angry. It's the period at the end that makes it aggressive.

Ms. Moon said...

I'm totally missing out by not texting, right?

FRANNIE said...

I think we were separated at birth, that was freakin' hilarious.

I MUST follow you now. :)

FRANNIE said...

Oh and I'm your 100th follower that's so cool!

otherworldlyone said...

Ha. I love your texts. Especially the manual manipulation. Good one.

Have missed you, though not quite sure why. Not as if you've been anywhere, right? Or maybe I have?

Happy new year.

Mwa said...

Oh. I like these.

LiLu said...

He *totally* sounded mad. At you AND the milk.

otherworldlyone said...

Oh, it's beautiful! Especially since I don't have to touch it. Thank you, Erin.

Wow. I realized right before I posted this that no one would know what I was talking about and it could possibly be interpreted as dirty.

Then I realized that most people aren't as perverse as I am and hit the publish button anyway.

Sam said...

Those are hilarious. I love the "You sound mad" text. Hee.

P.T said...

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

My husband is not into texting at all!

And the last one is total opposite to my situation. My mum would call me at the most inopportune times.

:)
