My sister A and I have G-chat conversations that tend toward hyperbole.
A: Is tn so great!?
me: i’m having fun
i had a conf call so t got to bond [with our niece and nephew]
when we were driving away, he said, “i kindof forgot that i was an uncle”
then guess what happened last night
A: haha how exciting!
oh gosh I just have no idea
me: i texted L to see what they have going on this week
and we planned for dinner friday, but she said “are you coming tonight?”
me: and i said what do u mean
and she said
and then i got a phone call!
from J. K.
and guess what
the K’s were having a going away party
A: I just cannot handle it all
me: LAST NIGHT for the m’s and the n’s
me: and we GOT TO GO!!
A: how great!!
me: it was really fun!
did you know they are moving to China?
A: were they all just so excited to see you?!
yep I did
what city, btw?
me: yes i think everyone was happy to see us, and i was shaking with excitement when i got there.
it was so fun.
They are going to shanghai.
i’m going to go visit them.
we’re going to find a conference for T to go to.
So, in summary, we got to see our niece and nephew and sister-in-law H for a while, T got to experience some unfamiliar but fun “uncle time,” and we got to crash a party for some very good friends of ours in Kingsport who are moving to China for two years.What a happy day!
