Texting

After reading this post on texting by Pioneer Woman I was reminded of my own son who likes to text for me.  My 13 yr old. 

Co-workers often text me in the morning to let me know if they aren't coming in or if they're having issues they need to talk to me about...and since I'm driving, I hand my iPhone to my son and dictate what I want him to text in response.

However, he adds his own little flare to the responses. 

At first they were confused, but now,
my co-workers know to be on the lookout for his take on things.

He uses texting shorhand...I do not.
I like to spell everything out correctly and use proper punctuation.
I'm a total dork, I know.

Did you know that punctuation was invented in the 1500s?

Anyway, back to my son..
I have to keep an eye on him.
The little pranks he likes to pull on me?
Changing the language on my iPhone to Japanese or Italian.
Or changing my background photo.
or rearranging my apps.

Drives me nuts.

He just needs to know...payback is hell.

LOL. I'm sure you'll get him back. Mom's always do.
