Don't Let the Clothes Fool You

Late the other night I was instant messaging with my friend Sue.


We were talking a little TV (the ER cliffhanger, how the family edition of the Amazing Race made Sue catatonic for weeks,) how serial killers can find you from the Internets (one, maybe both of us have imaginations that could go toe-to-toe with a Kenyan in a marathon,) and the use of adjectives in emails. I really needed to clean the kitchen but didn’t want to leave the computer. I have to say, it’s hard to type and scrub at the very same time, that’s how the baby got scratches on his face and why the tub is still filthy.

I had a thought: If ONLY there was a WAY where I could IM her but it would be TALKING so my hands would be free.


Dear Alexander Graham Bell and/or Elisha Gray,

Sorry.

Sincerely,

Imsuchanerd

love your honesty.
your new idea would not have a customer in our little friend cJane, though.....

AzĂșcar said...

Video? Then she'd be able to SEE me clean in my skivvies. No one needs to see that, not ever!

A call from cjane is a treat indeed, and I always tell her so.

True, you could call Sue, but she probably wouldn't answer the phone.

Dear Imsuchanerd:

You can call me anytime in your skivvies and we can chat away!

Sincerely,

I laughed for approximately three hours about this that night.

Hee hee. Also, you're just trying to make me jealous. Next time, make it a conference chat, er, call.

Like they always say, the necessity of not leaving your computer is the mother of invention.

Brooke said...

yes, but why does im-ing seem so much easier?

Bek said...

I did the same thing the other day, thinking, it would be so nice not to have to type all the time so I could have my hands free. And I was staring at my phone at the time.

Good one.

just finished watching Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway on Moviefone Unscripted. It totally reminded me of this post. I know it would kill the techie in ya to go to an AOL site, but the part I am talking about is only 4 minutes into it.....
