Neighbors

My husband works with our neighbor, who is his best friend and college roommate. They commute together and sit at desks in the same room. Now, they have access to Instant Messenger, because turning around to speak is just too much work.

Thanks to you both for preserving and distributing that burst of strangeness. Re-reading it made me giggle...and question my sanity. ;)

There have been a few times when Shelswick was at the computer (she can spend literally days at a time playing on Neopets) and I've had to resort to unplugging the phone, attaching the cable to the laptop, connecting via dialup, and PMing her with Yahoo messenger to get her attention. I tells ya, a few more years and everybody's vocal cords are going to atrophy. Damn kids, with your PMing and your Beck and your Braun hand blenders...

Hey watch it when you dis Braun Hand Blenders. I've mixed many a protein shake in my day. Just like my hero, Arnold. (kidding about that last part)
