Bonding Over IM

Last night KT and I were sitting companionably together in the front room.  She was sitting at the computer finishing up her homework while I was in the armchair near her playing working on my laptop.   It was getting late and I gently suggested that she should think about heading to bed.  She merely glared at me.  A moment later, I noticed that I had an Instant Message.  It was from KT and petulantly said


Of course, it was quickly followed by

Are you bored yet? This is about the time Shaun came upstairs to see what all the cackling was about.  We were having such fun trying to see who could come up with the best (or perhaps goofiest!) work of um…art.

It wasn’t nearly as interesting as our work of art.  Hmmm….we drew it in white and it won’t show up.   Oh well, it was late, we were tired and it was a different type of can anyways….

Who knew we could all have such fun and bond over IM while sitting in the same room?

    George and I sometimes have IM conversations in the office when we are on different computers in the same room – it usually starts when one of us hears the sound of an incoming message . . . We don’t do the drawings though – too cute!
