If you’ve read Text Wars Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3, you know that I enjoy channeling my inner 12 year old and texting obnoxious things to my friends and loved ones. Bad puns, photos of Michelle Duggar, and lyrics in Emojis are all sort of standard. Lately, I’ve decided to take it up a notch and focused my iPhone efforts on my husband. After a million years of marriage, I have not yet grown tired of greeting him at the door wearing a unicorn mask or shooting 20 NERF darts at his chest before he even gets up the front steps.
ROMANTIC, RIGHT? I just like getting hysterical reactions out of him, but I feel like he’s become desensitized. This emoticon accurately represents his response when I shot him with NERF darts after work.
And when he walked in the front door and I was wearing my new unicorn mask and Roger Rabbit-ing my way around the living room.
When I covered his pillow in post-it notes with cartoon penguins drawn all over them.
Stoic. Unfazed. Only mildly irritated.
I walked into the bedroom and saw his phone charging. Swiped it. Settings >> General >> Keyboard >> Shortcuts and I created a new shortcut.
Then this happened, so I put it on Instagram, because… ACHIEVEMENTS.
(If the teeny text is aggravating you, read the whole caption here to ‘get it.’)
His face. His face was just so… there is no string of emoticons to express his sentiment.
Jack had to text everyone and say that he didn’t really mean to type that, and I had messed with his phone. Shockingly, not one of the recipients was surprised. Weeeeiiiiird.
Waited a few weeks. Hijacked his phone again last night, in a less obvious way.
Waiting. Waiting so patiently. HOW YOU LIKE ME MEOW?
