Last week I took my first out of town trip without Mayhem. And I knew it would be difficult for both of us, but I underestimated how upset she’d be.
But that’s why we love our technology, right? We never have to lose touch.
Over the course of our 60 hours apart, Mayhem sent me (with the help of dictation for iPhone) approximately 300 text messages.
And if I didn’t respond promptly, she let me know…
But the next morning, I sensed a shift in attitude…
As my late flight drew nearer, her excitement grew…
And when I jumped in the car at approximately 12:15am and leaned over to give her a squeeze, I found her completely passed out. As she should have been.
I squeezed her and smooched her anyway and when I told her I loved her, she opened her eyes and looked at me and smiled.
And drifted back off to sleep.
We survived. With a little help from unlimited texting 😉
