i also like it when i make up a word like "succinctness" and discover it's a real word when no red-squiggle line appears.
the point is. the following textconvo just occurred with my elder sister. and i adored it.
she: lunch....turkey, avocado, watermelon, whole grain crackers:
i: that looks delightful! except for the melon. but still looks good.
she: do you like any form of melon?
i: do you like it when 2 pieces of styrofoam rub together?
(note: low blow on my part. she suffers from styrophobia. okay, that one got the red squiggle.)
she: gah! uncalled for!
i: haha sorry...but melon makes me gag. it's up there w/ macaroni noodles. oh sick.
she: how are we related? i love all those things! and...celery...
i: stop that.
she: hahaha, well, anyway, whatever the differences in our produce preference may be i will always be grateful and indebted to you for bringing avocado into my life on nov. 1, 2008.
i: and i will always be grateful you showed up in utah to eat avocado and go shoe shopping the day after my bf broke up with me.
ah, sisterly love.
