Paige, Wherefore Art Thou Paige?
Me (in yellow Music Man costume) close to Paige's current age, next to Katie holding little Paige.
I sent my first and second text messages today. It took me fifteen minutes to complete each message. I had a headache by the end from squinting. I could've watched a full episode of The Office on Hulu in the time it took me to text two messages. Or, if I had felt like being productive, I might've cleaned the piano.
This was me texing:
Squint, squint (leave me alone about my glasses),
--where is the h? Oh, h.
I ha (a is easy).
--now to v. tuvt--oh man! uv.
--Then, I get halfway through the word something, and the phone recognizes that I want to type something. Sweet! But where is enter? A full minute later I still don't know how to do it. FINE, I'll type the whole thing. S-o-m-e-t-h-j-i Oh man! Delete, delete.
I have something...
The message went on, but it seems pointless to make you suffer through what I've already suffered. Just know we could've gone out for ice cream in the time it took to send two blinking messages.
I wished for Paige to be around. She's a texting wiz. Paige rules at texting. Paige could've whipped out a text with appropriate abbreviations and super cute emoticons. Oh Paige, why do you live 45 minutes away? It would take me three whole texts to drive to you!
This wouldn't have been the first time Paige rescued me though, oh no. Last summer on our annual girls trip, Paige discovered that I wore a granny bra. Then everyone else noticed too.
"Look how many hooks it has!"
"It doesn't even fit!"
"It's sort of gray, Jayne!"
Ha ha ha, ho ho ho, and on and on they went.
And then, to my great surprise and excitement, when we got home, Paige sent two of "hand me up" (see, cause I'm older. Get it? Hand me UP? :) : ) !!!!) bras from American Eagle. She'd grown out of the lovelies (remember those days?) and sent them to a shrunken Jayne. Now you won't catch me in that large, gray granny bra!
So, I've decided, if for no other reason than my own hipness, I've got to get Paige down to BYU.
