Mom’s Messages: Real Texts from My Ma

24 Nov

Grace: So, I just got this from mom. “Good 4 u!             U r Ur grandmothers kin!”

Me: It’s like a shitty fortune cookie. By the way, she also has unlimited texting. You’re welcome.

Grace: Great. Thanks for that.

Me: This is the one I got the other day about the Christmas Lists. “BTW, I do not have Word & Granny could not print off ur lists.      cn you resend n another format & make it print n black?”

Grace: Umm. Wow.

Me: I fear sending a PDF. It might blow her mind.

Grace: Do It. PDF it.

Me: This was after I got the following text, asking if she had Word. “I don’t know will ck with Leo when he gets home. It is his old lap top gaming computer Alienware?”

Grace: So many things wrong with that. 1. Leo has a gaming laptop? 2. What the fuck is Alienware? 3. Why does it all end in a questionmark?

Me: She worked with digital medical records.

    Your mom texts??!! I’m not over that. Mine doesn’t, thank God and All Things Holy.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

      I’m with you. My mom doesn’t know how to use email yet. She will certainly never learn to text and you know what? I’m ok with that

        Yeah, I just got friended by my Grandma on Facebook. There are things I’d rather my family not be technologically familiar with.

    Yeah, so I’ll be frank here.

    I skipped over this for a few days because I couldn’t think of anything good to write.

    it’s hard to think of something after reading those text gems from yo’ mama.

    Those were little nuggets of pure delight, so I still got nuttin’ for you. Your mom is cool, yo.
