More on the texting front from Overseas Hick.
My phone is trying to screen his calls, I guess. This afternoon, it put itself in airplane mode. When I discovered that glitch and took 10 minutes to figure out how to put it back to normal, I found this:
I'm home I miss you
Are you there I'm going to go to bed soon
I hope you're alright you can text but I'm going to lay down I love you
Oh, on the surface, it looks like a loving husband, lonely and missing his soulmate, concerned about her well-being. Look a little deeper, and you're realize that Hick WENT TO SLEEP right after that. Sure. Cut him some slack. He's on the job. The time is different over in Sweden. But what you don't know is what happened yesterday.
"I'm back was great time"
"How was your day"
"OK. Eating chicken. Won 70 on lottery."
"OK going to bed will talk in morning love you"
"OK. Love you. Jack has been missing all day."
"Probably at HOS's"
"Copper the neighbor dog is not around either. Just Juno."
"That dog goes to HOS's also"
"HOS is going to look for him"
Did you catch that? HICK took time to text HOS and tell him to look for Jack! Yet when he couldn't reach ME, he just went to his shower-bed! Let the record show that no search party showed up to pound on my door to see if I was all right! And I didn't hear anybody yelling, "VAL...VAAA-AAL...come and get your snack, Val! AND I'm pretty sure nobody was poking under the Little Barbershop of Horrors with a stick, just in case I was under there foaming at the mouth and shaking.
I'm not sure what time the text originally came in. When I got back from town around 11:45, it DID look like somebody had driven through the grass beside the driveway. Either some robbers stopped by who drive recklessly...or HOS came down on the 4-wheeler looking for me while I was gone.
Maybe Hick really DOES love me as much as he loves Puppy Jack...
Jack turned up back home in time for his evening snack. I assume that's all most of you care about, you know. Not whether I have enough gas station chicken on hand to tide me over until tomorrow!
