So I got this great idea while I was driving today that would provide me entertainment and also include an opportunity to test out my friends and family. What could be better?! I was singing along loudly and dancing to "If I Had a Million Dollars" when I got the idea to send my brother a text that said, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you an exotic pet." My brother will not find this strange at all, because nearly all of our communication is in the form of movie, TV, or song quotes.
Then, I thought, "OH. MY. GOSH. I am going to send these random texts to various people in my contacts list and see how they respond!" Hooray. What a great idea. So excited. Let's do this.
I texted my hubby, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a fur coat."
Response: Nothing. (FAIL)
I texted my friend Amy from high school, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a green dress."
Response: "I'd buy you a house." (WIN)
I texted my female rock star drummer, Heather, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a monkey."
Response: "Could it be an Aye Aye Lemur?" (WIN)
I texted my sister, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you some art."
Response: "A Picasso or a Garfunkel!" (YOU WIN SO HARD)
I texted my friend, Deidre, a piano teacher, "If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you a nice Reliant automobile."
Me: "It's from the song..."
D: "Yes, I know, but random..."
Me: "This text is from me, you know..."
Meanwhile, I am having the time of my life thinking of which lyrics I should send to various people and gut laughing while imagining their face as they receive such special messages from me.
I really recommend it. You can't just text anyone, though. You have to find the people with the right sense of humor, or you may get no response, and that will cause you to wonder about them. (Weirdos!)
In the meantime, here are some things you should laugh at. Go on, get on it.
Peace, love, and funny funny ha ha,
