In which chatting drains my brain

As you know, or you would if you ever actually read this blog, I have two girls who are away at college.  I occasionally communicate by phone but most of our communications are by text or by AIM or Facebook chat.

 

Because we spend a lot of time watching stupid movies and discussing inane topics, you can imagine how rambling these “chats” are.  The other day Andie was at her job tutoring biology at Duke and nobody was there so she was bored and forced me to stay and chat with her for about an hour.  The sheer amount of ridiculous topics that you can run through in an hour is amazing so without further ado, I’ll share a typical chat with you:

 

Andie:             Have you seen all those Charlie Sheen videos on YouTube?

 

Me:                 No, I refuse to watch them.  It’s so sad what a mess he is.

 

Andie:             But they’re hilarious.

 

Me:                 Maybe so but it’s like watching a train wreck.  He’s bipolar

 

Andie:             He’s bi-winning

 

Me:                 You’re bipolar too

 

Andie:             But not bi-winning

 

Me:                 Probably not

 

Andie:             He only has one gear: GO

 

Me:                 My one gear is SIT…or lie down…or perhaps sprawl

 

Andie:             That’s a great gear!

 

Me:                 Keely’s one gear is fall

 

Andie:             hahahaha

 

Me:                 What’s your one gear?

 

Andie:             complain…scratch that…rant

 

Me:

Thats what I was gonna say but I thought you’d bitch at me.

What’s that silly phrase that Rebecca Black says?

The one without the verbs

 

Andie:

we we we so excited

we so excited

we gonna have a ball today

 

Me:

Katee Sackoff hash tagged that the other day…so funny

#wewewesoexcited

Hahaha

On twitter

 

Andie:        the best line is FUN FUN FUN FUN

 

Me:

Yep

Also, yesterday was Thursday

That’s an EDUCATIONAL line

Man, you’re really wasting my time…does Liz read my blog?

(one of Andie’s friend who’s also a Bio tutor on Tuesdays)

 

Andie:

and tomorrow will be Saturday

hahaha no she doesn’t

 

Me:                 Who’s promoting me while I’m wasting all this time?

 

Andie:             haha you need to chill

 

Me:

Damn…that’s why I like Beth and Kathleen more

(other friends of Andie’s who DO read my blog)

 

Andie:

Liz doesn’t even know you

You haven’t even really met her

 

Me:                 Her loss

 

Andie:             like not since we became good friends and she became not mute

 

Me:

Breaking NEWS on CNN

What IS?

What is the endgame?

How is that breaking news?

 

Andie:

what?

what is breaking news?

 

Me:

Thats my point! The breaking news was:

What is the endgame?

Which is a question

So how can a question be breaking news?

 

Andie:

wait

what breaking news?

what are you talking about?

 

Me:                 I just told you

 

Andie:             what was it?

 

Me:                 Can u save this convo and send it to me?

 

Andie:

no

Why do you need it?

Save it yourself

mwahahhaha

 

Me:

The breaking news was that question

I can’t save it…I’m on the iPad

 

Andie:

I have chewed five pieces of gum since we started talking

hahahah

ew

 

Me:            That’s quinti-winning

 

Andie:

hahahaha

I’m about to get another

 

Me:             I’m going to talk about our stupid convos

 

Andie:        I’M ABOUT TO HEXA-WIN!

 

Me:            You’re a moron

 

Andie:

Charlie, Rebecca

but this one isn’t funny

dumb idea

dumb dumb dumb dumb!

 

Me:                 I won’t use the whole thing

 

Andie:

(get it, it rhymes with fun)

Fun fun fun

Dumb dumb

 

Me:

i get it…you’re ridiculous

i don’t have the whole conversation so i need you to save it and email it so i can pick out some of the bi-winning topics

please

like the one gear that’s go or sprawl or fall or rant

 

Andie:

hahaha what

another good quote: I don’t sleep, I WAIT

 

Me:                 What? Wait? He’s crazy

 

Andie:             I know…but bi-winning

 

Me:                 but can you save it and email it to me, cuz i don’t know how?

 

Andie:

good everyone just left

so i just have to chill till ten

and still get paid

mwahahhahaha

best job eva

 

Me:                 I can’t believe I’ve just wasted an entire hour on you

 

 

So there you are!  One hour of my life I’ll never get back so if you ever wonder why I’m so stupid you have the proof right here.  Conversations like this drain my brain.

    God, I wish I had conversations like that with my mom, lmao.

    She’d be like, “Why do I give a damn about Martin Sheen’s son? Go get help, child.” Hahaha.

      You have to have a really stupid mom to participate in these types of conversations. Andie is all fortunate to have that

    You guys sound great friends – anyone who can kill an inane hour together like that must love eachother (forreelz)

    I have intentionally avoided the Rebecca Black video thus far. Maybe I am making a mistake. Sounds like good comedy fodder.

    Also, my mother, my sister and I have been watching the Bachelor/ette series together over the phone since the day it began. Nothing like sharing low brows bits of pop culture with family.

      My daughter made me watch it to see how bad it was. Then it got stuck in my head. Now we text the lyrics back and forth so to me, totally worth it!

      I have had stupid conversations with them since they were little. School is all about the serious and i was always about the silly.

    I am staying far away from Rebecca Black.

    At least your daughter likes to talk to you. No matter how dumb the conversation is.

      Yeah…I talk to my kids all the time!

    My sons and I have similar conversations, but because they try to make me feel stupid, not out of love or anything. And they don’t even read my blog, much less recommend it to friends. They’d be too afraid I’d say something “embarrassing” about them. I think Elder Son’s girlfriend would read it; she loves for him to be embarrassed. She’s going to make an awesome daughter-in-law someday.

      Well, none of my kids really read my blog and, in fact, think it’s stupid. As long as I don’t embarrass them anything goes. I constantly have dumb conversations with the girls though.

    I can’t wait to have fun convos with my kids. Coming here makes me excited for them to grow up, when usually I am all weepy over it. This is just too funny. No one in my house even gets what #winning is all about.

      Thanks…I tried to make sure my kids had a sense of humor and all three do. That child in particular, doesn’t mind discussing stupid stuff. I love inane conversations. Thanks for dropping by!!!
