The People On the Computer

A few months ago, when I say a few, I have no idea how long ago it was 3 months? 6 months? Anyway, doesn't change the story. My parents are from the stone ages. When I say stone ages, my mom was telling me, my sister and Mr. one night that she was born before the Heimlich Maneuver...we didn't believe her, there is no way! We said, so what did you do if someone was choking, she said people died and you tried to pry it out with your fingers, which she had to do as a teacher once. sidenote: it was invented in 1974.

 She also informed us that same night she used to live in a Quanza Hut...say what? That we had to look case you were wondering it looks like this:


We still to this day tease her about both and how old she is.

Okay back to my mom, so she's telling us one day about something that she found on the internet. I can't remember what exactly it was she was telling us but this is what she said, and I quote "The people on the computer told me...."

Yep she thinks there's little people in her computer telling her what to do...okay she really isn't crazy, that's just what she said, and let me tell you, we don't hold back on reminding her every second we get of her mistakes and how she was living in a quanza hut without the Heimlich, how did she survive? We don't hold back in my family.

Flash forward to last night. Curtis and I are on the computer together and he sees all the comments people have left for me on this here blog. He clicks on some of them and says "They're so sweet, I like the people on the computer"

So Mr. likes you guys, he really does, and he thinks you're all sweet, as do I. So thanks for the sweet comments and keep them coming!
