fun with instant messaging

Actual conversation between my husband and I, as he is about to leave work.

melissa 5:23 pm

melissa 5:24 pm
or, alternately: you apparate where?

dane 5:24 pm
huh. soon.

melissa 5:24 pm
I will keep the fireplace clear.

dane 5:25 pm

melissa 5:26 pm
for you to apparate.

melissa 5:26 pm

dane 5:27 pm

melissa 5:27 pm

or an acronym… rest… in… knitting?
rest in kicks?

melissa 5:28 pm

    Running into knobs?
    Reeling in keys?
    Ready instantly kiddo?

    It’s too late, my brain is turned to what?

    My husband and I text…not often this amusing, I must say. Will there be a follow up post where you disclose the meaning?
    Really, I’m kidding!

      He really did mean I was an IM-ing cat. Or he was. Maybe we both were?
