No Texting in the Outfield

"Wait how am I supposed to text with this thing on?"

On our vacation in Michigan, we piled my brother's kids and ours into the car and took them to play some softball.

We let the kids bat first.  My not-so-sporty kids were at least able to hit the ball.  Though the bat looked like it weighed more than my son and Jess and Alyss decided to ballet leap to first instead of run.

When it was the kids' turn in the field, I handed Jess my glove.  She put it on and looked down at her hands confused and asked, "Wait, how am I supposed to text with this thing on?"

I laughed but wondered if there is any hope for her.

  1. Jess, put down the cell phone for five minutes - you'll live!!

  2. Alex- That's what I keep telling her! :)

  3. It annoys me to see kids today on the bus or walking down the street with thumbs frantically tapping at the keys of a phone. Or those on a bus with earphones in and music clearly audible as it escapes through the nostrils. Oops felt a rant coming on then, this clearly hit a nerve with me :)

  4. Haha this is hilarious! I linked to it on my FB page, hope you don't mind. Too good not to share.

  5. Heyyy………haha there's never hope for me.

  6. jp- me too, it's almost an addiction for them.

    Karen- haha that's fine! Thanks for sharing it!

    Jess- of course there's hope for you! You wrote and published a whole novel, that's more than I've done so far!
