Since September, my youngest son has been counting down the days since he was "supposed" to get his own cell phone. And by "supposed", I mean..well, it's a long story.
So, we had to wait until November until Big Daddy was eligible for an upgrade, and then a whole lot of other things happened, and the next thing I knew it was January. Big Daddy came home from work and laid his busted phone in my lap.
FYI, if you drop a canned good on the pocket containing your phone, it will crack the screen.
Long story short, the youngest child has been now been gifted with his first phone. After I had it activated, I immediately added his number to my contacts because my ability to remember a number diminishes by the minute. I could just see him calling me one day. I'd be all, "Hmm. I don't know that number; I'm not going to answer."
To add to his excitement, I quickly sent him a text so that I would be his first. My side of the conversation is blue:
By the time I got the message, "My mother is right beside me...," I was cracking up. My son WAS sitting just across from me. I was all, "Darrin! I am texting you. What is your deal?"
Darrin, putting down his iPod Touch: "Huh? What? I didn't text you."
Me: "What? Yes you did. Look..."
Then the realization hit. I checked my contacts.
Of course, you already knew what I did before I made it this far, right?
I know I am not alone; there are entire websites built on text message boo-boos. What is the funniest thing that has happened to you? Come on, laugh WITH me.
