Texting: A Tale

This was a conversation Charles and I had through text. I wanted to document it.

Me: How goes the Buffy watching? I have to check in on you every hour when I know you're watching it or I get all figity.

Charles: XD Afraid I'll revert to Dragon Age?

Me: No. Well, yes. But mainly I just like to check your progress. You're like a download and the number of episodes you've watched is your percentage completion.

Charles: Excellent. Am I a good download? Something fun, like a pokemon emulator?

Me: You're one of those massive downloads that takes up tons of space and a week to finish all the way, and every time you leave the computer, someone turns it off or the power goes out or an earthquake hits only your house, causing the raspberry soda you left on the computer desk to spill all over the keyboard and cause a short circuit that catches the computer on fire and the hard drive melts a hole in the floor, which you fall into and get trapped in the basement and nobody's home because your parents are on vacation and you left your cell phone to charge so you can't call for help. Meanwhile the computer is still on fire and it burns the house down, so when your parents come home, they think you died in the fire and set up a memorial for you and move to connecticut because the memories are too painful and when you finally get out of the hole, you have to go through the foster situation to finally get adopted and start the download process all over again. But you're much more careful this time because you really want your download to finish and you know it will be worth it.

Charles: Well! Is there an entire chapter of your life you haven't told us about, Chelsea? Or did that happen to a friend of yours?

Me: I'd rather not talk about it.


My mind frightens me sometimes.

I hadn't realized before how useful the [Like button] was. This will have to do.
