And so, I return to my blog with what I consider to be the most amusing text thread of 2019. Following is the text thread betwixt my handyman, Scott, and I, about his coming to my apartment to check on the hot water tank. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Notes in italics are for you, dear reader.
Scott: Hi Becky, I hope you had a great Christmas. Can I stop by today to measure the hot water tank? If so, what time?
Becky: OMG Scott, we were about to call the FBI…we thought you had been taken by the mob or something. (laughing smiley face) I’m here most of the day working if you want to stop by. I’ll be in and out this evening, but if I’m not here just let me know when you’re coming.
Scott, AKA Buddha Belly: Ok I will try to get over there today, but I’m really a secret agent on assignment and you should know danger follows me everywhere I go! So for your eyes only (and now also the readers of this blog post) my code name is Buddha Belly. LOL if I cannot get there today I will not be able to make it until next year. So sorry I have not been working on the rental but I have been so busy working on this MLK job (Surely a cover!!) I’m now past the completion date. I swear this job is killing me. Happy new year!
Becky: I’m willing to take that chance, Buddha Belly. I’ve enlisted the Half Asian Sensation (my boyfriend Greg) to help protect you on the 1815 assignment. Godspeed.
Grown adults being silly with one another will never — ever — get old with me. It warms my heart that my fifty-something handyman Scott went along with my ridiculous text message and then raised it to the next level!
Don’t forget to giggle, you guys. And always make time in your day for frolicking.
