I've found my current blog obsession

I've just spent a good 15 minutes going through my phone and submitting my own. So far none of them are up yet but JUST YOU WAIT.

I love that 40-somethings and up have to put !!! after everything. I read 90% of my mom's texts and Facebook posts as yelling.

When my nephew's late for his curfew, my sis, his Mom, texts him: what the fizzle?

I think she translates into a modern, techno Mom.

Ha! I LOL'D for real at that.

My sister was a wild teenager. My nephew's got nothing on her! He couldn't pull anything if he wanted to anyway, she knows all the tricks, she used them herself.

My parents don't text because they can't see the letters and their fingers lack agility. Now I feel like I'm missing out.

I have all my mom's first-year texts saved on my phone. It was before she realized you could change what autocorrect suggests. I got lots of hilarious things like "When you take back and rob and home". But my favorite is not a mistake, seriously what she meant, I just find it hilarious: "Hi smile getting your dry cleaning" hahah what the fizzle

My mom rarely texts me, but when she does, it's a lot like this site. One time she texted me when I was 7-8 hours away at school to tell me that she ate all my oreos (and then signed it "love mom," of course), but because of the spelling/abbreviations and lack of punctuation it took me a couple minutes to decipher everything. And, to repeat what I just said, she almost never texts me. It was all very random and confusing.

I feel like together we could have made this website!!!

when my mom was first learning to text she didn't know you could put a space between the words, so every text was one long word.

my dad, until very recently, would always sign off chat with, Love, Dad. I didn't realize we were writing each other a letter.

My mom still ends texts and emails with "love, mom!" (always lowercase)

Not a text ... but she once sent me an email that linked to a picture of a baby conveying her message in a deep man voice. The baby bounced up and down and told me to pick my sister up at the metro. Also, "love mom."

Oh, man, all the stuff you guys are making fun of is totally me at the texting. I once texted my friend a text full of only the letter "gggggggg" because I didn't know how to type any other letter (like, press another button?). Then I'd have to go to my e=mail and explain and apologize for my nonsensical, one-letter-repeated texts. I'm learning a bit about texting now. I keep them very short because if I make a mistake, I don't know how to backspace so I just mix in error words with the words I intend and hope for the best.

Yeah, my eyesight isn't what it was lately. Even on here when people use that tiny font, I can't read it!

OH OH! I forgot about my favorite favorite text, mom or otherwise, that I have saved. It's from 2 years ago, from my mom of course, and it says "Does not grow there."

Neither of us has or had any idea what she was talking about. It's the most random thing ever.

I have no idea why, but I taught my momma how to text (she heard me telling my brother about an iPhone app where we can text for free and she said she wanted it, too). Now she will initiate texts with me and then say, "I'm going to sign off. I'm too old for texting." It makes me giggle.

When we first got texting, my dad sent me a text saying "ificanspacebar" because he couldn't figure out the space bar. The next one said "tht wld rck" because he took out all the vowels because he want to abbreviate text talk. Now he just says "my thumbs are too big text mom."

This isn't quite as funny, but here's an email my dad recently sent to me. It's amusing to me because it's more formal than it probably should be, sort of like he's setting up a business meeting.

Quote:
I will be in Marquette, Mi around noon- 1pm. on saturday, 12-11-10. My new

is 1-555-555-5555. Please confirm you number as 1-555-555-5555. Thanks, Dad.
