Eavesdropping: Texting Style

So, I have a dilemma. I'm sort of in a pickle, as some may say.
If I participate in a conversation, can I technically call it "eavesdropping"?
Probably not. But guess what?
My blog.
My rules.
Take that evil blog rule thinker-uppers.

The following is a portion of a text conversation between the Creative Director (or CD as she'll be referred to below, who by the way is very, very pregnant and a mommy of a soon-to-be two-year-old girl) (sorry...but you know who you are) and me.

CD: God I wish I could go for adult drinks...big ones...With lots of alcohol!
Me: Day is going well huh?
CD: You have a 2 year know. Is it legal to put them in the dryer? What if I don't turn it on?
Me: I would suggest washing machine
CD: (text came with a photo attached -- green glop on a kitchen table -- thanks for that) Want some already been chewed asparagus? Mmm. Tell me, why bother chewing all your food if you are just going to spit it out.
Me: I understand her feelings there...but can't say I blame her. lol
CD: It wasn't just asparagus. All she's eaten is half a pound of jojo's, a cup of rice-a-roni and half an apple fritter. At least I try to tell myself its a fruit and vegi. lol
Me: Sounds fine to me. lol

Needless to say, we probably won't be getting those "Best Parent in Town" awards this year either.
Damn. I already dusted a spot on the shelf for the giant trophy shaped like a Mondo Margarita.

Maybe next year...

I would give you the mommy award. Hey at least the kid'lins are not old enough yet to be hiding their chewed up food in napkins under that dryer yet. uh hum...cough cough. :-)

Hee Hee. Her and I had almost the exact same conversation. Baby Godzilla does the same thing, usually with bananas though. Yum.

Just so everyone is clear the dryer was not actually used, thanks in part to the Coldstone Gotta Luv It sized sundae I ate to replace the adult beverage I was craving at the time. Ice cream = Alcohol when pregnant!
