Eight's Birthday present.

Apparently, Eight was gifted some type of Ipod Touch with a text app, for her birthday. I did not know this ahead of time. Doc and I did not discuss present options or ideas. But at about 5:20pm last night, I started to receive text messages from Eight...
and they have continued through the week-end.
And trust me... they are pretty Earth shattering bits of information and/or in depth discussions. For example:

11:40am This Morning.

Eight wrote:
What's your favorite color? Mine is sky blue:)

(FYI: This is officially the first time, I have typed a smiley face. I'm keeping the integrity of her texts.)

I texted in response:
Purple. Always has been.

Eight replied: Nice!

I mean... seriously! What if that exchange had NOT taken place today? She may never have known my favorite color?! Thank gosh for modern technology.

I can't believe that purple is still your favorite color. You just don't seem the purple type. :)

Who knew that Munchkin is a smiley face savant. Super impressed. :O I know savant is not used properly. I just can't find another word to fit.

I also recieved some texts from #8. It went like this:

#8 - It's 8's iPod

Chili - Hey 8's iPod!!!! (Insert name for 8 and with first two letters in caps).

#8 - My name isn't spelled like that;)

#8 - :[

Fun times

Yes, purple is still my favorite color. No... I never wear purple. Liking a color and knowing it does not work for your skin tone or personality... are two different things.
After receiving Eight's text. I asked Coach if he knew my favorite color.
It took him 7 guesses to reach purple. I guess, I am a mystery. Sorta an enigma.

Coach said...

I have never heard or seen anything like those smiley things ever.

I bet The Kid can guess your favorite color on one try.

Munchkin said...
