Since my parents went on vacation, my Dad needed to borrow my laptop. Seeing as how I need a computer and internet to work (and so does he), it made sense for me to stay at their house while they're gone. This way I can work and feed the cats and water and make sure Adam doesn't get into too much trouble. ;-)
(yes, it's me, Kikita)
Anyway, day one was going pretty smoothly. I had fed the cats and was throwing myself into the long work day I had ahead of me. Dad and I will instant message each other about work related stuff because it's faster than making a phone call. In this day and age, I'm sure you understand.
So I'm quietly plugging away when POP!
An instant message from Dad: Amy, I need a favor . . .
No problem, he needed some notes off of his desk (which is where I happened to be working).
A little while later . . . POP!
(I think the little pop sound the computer makes to let me know I have an IM is kind of fun)
Amy, I need another quick favor . . .
No problem, he needed an email address for a new contact of his.
Back to work I went because I had a lot that needed to get done.
HOLA! MAMI HERE!
She just wanted to chat . . . which was fine. I can chat and work at the same time. Besides, Dad is really cool and has two monitors (which makes chatting while working much easier).
POP! POP! POP!
(That pop sound is kind of stupid, who thought of it anyway?)
Now they are both going.
Dad is asking work related things, Mami is sharing about the Thermometer.
Dad is having me check something while Mami wants me to check the blog for the Thermometer picture.
POP! POP! POP!
And I'm starting to go kind of crazy and am suddenly curious as to how they are both capable of IM-ing me at the same time . . .
POP! POP! BUZZ!
My phone phone is vibrating because Mom is texting me (on top of instant messaging) . . . so I thought.
It was Lucy, sending me a picture.
Apparently, my parents were playing Battleship . . .
and I just happened to get caught in the cross-fire. =D
