Conversating Thom

It started innocently enough with a simple email  …

Thom: “I will pick your glasses up and do any mail on Friday. I’ll just make that the day since I’m off…(no wisecrack here) Hope you are having a good time.  Aloha.”

Me: “Friday is fine.  And, I am so far cooking and washing dishes and grocery shopping and laundrying, but in a few my camera and I are going out for a walk!  Amoeba and crew have gone on a field trip with a packed lunch, and he won’t be back until dinner time.  I have all day to play and use of a car, but I just may remain on foot.”

Thom: “k…I so loved those shots of the airport…that was cool…you don’t get to see that kind of shots very often :)”

Me: “I am glad you enjoyed it.  I was wishing for better weather, but the rain didn’t mess up the shots as much as I feared it would.”

Thom: “picky picky picky.”

Me: “pft”

Thom: “I see the lips aren’t tired any longer.”

Me: “Is it imperative that you have the last word in this conversation?”*

Thom: “Possibly…just like someone on the other end of this email must as well :)”

Me: “Who, me? Nah!”

Thom: “pffft”

Me: “I already said that!”

Thom: “Yeah, but I didn’t.”

Me: “Go to work!”

Thom: “still too early…I’m not on PDST”

Me: “Well, I am and it’s time to shower and head out and play!  Laters!”

Thom: “have a good time. Aloha.”

Me: “Aloha.  (Which leaves me with the last word!)”

Thom:  “happy trails”

Me: “LOL!”

Thom: “Syonara.”

Me: “hasta la vista!”

Thom: “Adios!”

Me: “A gentleman would let me win.”

Thom: “but you ain’t talking with a gentleman!”

Me: “yeah, and if I were I probably wouldn’t have this big smile on my face.”

Thom: “ROFLMAO…okay so shouldn’t you go and take photos and just walk away like any dignified lady would ?”

Me: “Why, yes, I think I should!”

Thom: “ta ta.”

Me: “mwah!”

Thom: “Back at ya.”

Me: “You win, I’m out of here!”

Thom: “ta ta.”**

*Please note that as soon as I said this, I realized I had two options: to lose, or to continue the conversation indefinitely.

**On the other hand, maybe I shouldn’t have given up so easily.  He was starting to repeat himself …..
