Miss Hope loves some good conversation. Add a cup of coffee and the kitchen table and I am set. It just fills my tank so to speak.
I love to know about other people's conversations. Especially if it's funny or memorable.
Take for instance:
Last night I had to take Paige to the high school to perform in some choir deal. They were showing all the local schools and Paige's school was invited to perform. The entire front sections were filled with groups of giggling 7th-12th graders. It had to be like a buffet .....teen style.
Paige was sitting with her group, beside a friend. They were eyeing all the new boys (well, new to them). The lights were low as all focus was on the stage. The friend commented on one particular boy.
Paige's friend: Paige, look! He is HOT. OMG.
Paige: Who? Oh no..EWWWWWWE. He is SO not hot. I think I know him and trust me, he is NOT hot whatsoever.
PF: I don't know him and he is too hot. Look at him!
Said boy sings and comes back to sit down. Where he then puts his glasses back on.
PF: OMG...I DO know him...and he is NOT hot!!!
Paige: See? I told you!
PF: Wow...the dark can make anyone look good, huh?
Paige: That's why so many people get pregnant.
Tonight I received a text message from a friend back home. M. sends me the occasional text to check in or let me know what's going on back at home. Tonight she sent me a picture text. It was a self portrait her son did at school and it was amazing! (It tickles me when she takes the time to do this because I appreciate it so much.) And I also consider texting a form of conversation, thanks to having a teenager.
Hope's Text: we're all sitting here going...WOW! he did a really good job. i hope you're going to frame it!
M's Text: you bet i am. I wish you could see on paper. it is awesome!
H T: i'll have to come by when we come home! yep...I just invited myself over.
M's T: come on sister!
HT: lol...you know i will!! Shoot. Anyone who will pray in a blog is liable to do anything!
MT: i love your blog but i always do. it is the first thing i look everyday after i check out whos been arrested.
HT: Girl. You just bought yourself a ticket into the next post.
Life is full of good conversations. Take a listen your own self and find out!
