My Hat Was Non

Linking up with Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. The topic this week is to share a recent text exchange that made me laugh.

Mama’s Losin’ It

My husband has a great sense of humor. It's one of the reasons I married him. That and he was willing to take on my three kids, which is quite an undertaking for a guy with a vasectomy.

Anyhoo, he can write some texts that just crack me the freak up.

Like this gem from a few weeks ago. My sister, Bon, and I were about to leave town to spend a few days at a condo in Brianhead, Utah. It was our now annual Sister's Trip, where we leave husbands (Fred and John), kids, and jobs behind and just bicker and drink hang out together.

We were gassing up the car before we left town and I told her to answer a text from my hubby while I put gas in the car. An easy task for most people, but my sister thinks she has a supersonic magnetic field which prevents her from using a touchscreen.

I know, right? She still has a Blackberry with actual buttons.

So she's trying to text him back from my iphone and hitting all the wrong keys and then auto-correct kicks in and she sends something that makes no sense at all. Keep in mind it's from my phone so he thinks it's me.

So here's how the conversation went. My sister's words are in green:

That last line is because my sister took a pee can (Yes, it's a can in which one pees) with her on our last sister's camping trip and used it in our tent and once in the car. And God knows where else.

And yet, our annual Sister's Trip continues.

Here's one more text gem between the hubs and me. He can be a helluva bit of a procrastinator at times and I mentioned in a blog post recently that he was loafing. A few days later we had this exchange:

I love it when I can crack him the freak up.

Freakily funny,

I'd say you are match made in heaven! Sounds like you never have a dull moment. Love the texts. And I can relate to your sister, although she has me beat. I don't do text. period.

Hilarious :) I love the sound of your sister - sounds so much like mine!

Kneading each other one night, things were loosening up until one pulled a wedgie.
I guess that last one just inspired me. "Oh the places you'll pee." - sounds like a travel agent giving advice to some senior clients before a big trip.
Thanks for the funny post. It started me up.

A sense of humor is the sexiest quality in a man, I think!
