The Interminable Lines at the Aurora Borealis

This is a little conversation I had with my boyfriend via text this morning (is it still okay to call someone in their mid-forties your “boyfriend?”). He is in the Pacific Northwest for work this week and his mother sent him a request.

I think that it is self explanatory, except for one inside joke that he references. It has to do with the fact that, a few years ago, my mother used to refer to the entire internet as “The Email.” I think we have her trained out of that now. She may still think that Bluetooth headsets are what people are referring to when they talk about “ear-pods,” but I’m not sure. I’ll have to check in with her about that one.





I know what you are thinking, and you are correct: we ARE assholes.
