Technology Run Amok

Text message received from my 12 year old last night.

"Ran out of toilet paper please help"

haha! My teenage son called me on his cell from downstairs for the same reason. I picked up the phone ready to bitch at him for calling instead of walking upstairs to talk. But when I heard his plight, I instead rushed to his rescue. Since I'd appreciate the same reaction in a similar situation.

But so much for the good old fashioned method: "MOOOOOOOOOOOOM!"

That may be the best use of texting technology ever!

And after breaking my foot Monday evening, I've taken to taking my cell phone with me to the toilet, just in case I find myself indisposed there (more than expected, I mean).

Too funny. I got one from my son once that went like this: DD, DH and I were out to dinner; DS was at home. (He was 16 or 17 at the time.) I had bought him a bake-at-home pizza at the local farmer's market, and he was to make that for his dinner. While DD and I were in the bathroom at the restaurant, I got a text from him saying, "WTF? The pizza is bubbling." I reply "OK?" and he says "Just thought you should know." This is my son who is going to college in less than 3 months!

That kid is too smart. Now, I guess that's a reason to take your phone into the bathroom.

This makes me feel better about having texted my husband from my car parked in our driveway, "Please come help with the groceries."
