My parents were shopping for a new dictionary online. I told them it was free at dictionary.com. My mom said, "Free? But you must still have to pay for shipping."
My father called and asked, "I know you know computers, so I wanted to ask you which is the best type of computer out of Apple, Dell, or Gateway?" I told him, "I'm not sure, it depends on what you want to do. Are you getting a new one?" He says, "Probably, I just wanted to ask you because I got an email telling me I've been chosen chosen to win a free computer out of those choices, and I also got a $200 gas card."
- I received the following text message from my mom: "ill call them when i get off work lATER TODAY AND HOW DO I KEEP GETTING THESE GOD DAMN CAPITOL LETTERS ON!!!" .

I walked into my house and my dad said he heard on the golf course about a book of faces, and that all his friends were worried that their children were in it because it is supposed to be college kids. He asked me if I had put my face in it and if it was a cult.
My sweet ol' Granny Myrle recently got her first computer. After playing solitaire for a while, she called my dad and said, "I have to stop playing! I owe a lot of money!" She had the "vegas scoring" option turned on. I love you Granny!
