My almost twelve year old granddaughter inherited her mother's old phone when mom got a new one. She is limited on who she can call, but since we are both on Verizon, any call to me is free, so she was delighted to put my number in her phone when I was there in March. Now, I hadn't heard from her but once when she called to wish me Happy Birthday in April. That's about what I expected, just an occasional call on special occasion or when something really special happens in her life.
Well, yesterday, I got a text message from her. Nothing special. Just how are you? how is the weather and how are the dogs? I thought it over for a little bit, got on line and check what txt msg would add to my bill. While Caroline and I were heading to our destination the other day, she sent me a short message to let me know that she had picked up Joey. Or rather she told me "The eagle has landed"!! LOL!
Now .... I don't use txt msg. But it is handy for short messages like that, and since young missy has discovered it ..... AND since I can have 250 messages, excuse me, msgs a month for $5, I decided to go ahead. A good thing is that I could make it retroactive to 6/18, so it picked up both Kylee's msg and Caroline's msg, saving me 40¢ right off the top. So I have, sighhh, actually entered the world of txt msg!!
I responded to Kylee's msg, and now she is on a roll!! Eight messages this AM!! Funny girl! She was even saying she couldn't get on line and check the email I sent her because her mom is on the computer AND on the phone! I about cracked up! I sent back that her mom should be saying that about her, and she replied that her mom just has to be talking with her friends 24/7! OMG!!! What a hoot she is!!! Now her phone is charging. I have a reprieve!
Now let's see .... eight msgs a day X 30 days a month = 240. YIKES!! I gotta tell her to cut down or I can't answer her. And meanwhile, none of you can txt msg me!!!!!
LOL! I know it will be less fascinating as time goes on and the novelty wears off. But right now, it is just too cute and funny!
