When Nichole and Corey come for a visit, they usually bring two cars since they don’t have enough room to fit 5 kids and 2 adults plus the necessary extras like clothes, toys, etc., into one car.
Also, I always get a text from Nichole letting me know when they are on their way, and generally one or two more if they stop for potty breaks/food or when they are getting close, so we know when to expect them.
Along with the texting is always my standard chiding about texting while driving. I can’t help it, I know how distracting cell phones are (I own one too), and I couldn’t even imagine trying to text while I was driving.
I’m just not that talented.
So the following is the texting conversation that occurred last Friday evening.
Nichole: (5:41 pm) en route 🙂
Nichole: (5:42) 🙂
Me: (5:43) 🙂
Me: (5:44) Quit texting and driving 🙂
Nichole: (5:44) lol
Nichole: (6:32) leaving men (this is the town of Menomonie, which is 30 miles from their house)
Me: (6:24) Kk
Nichole: (7:26) rice lake (about 45 minutes from our house)
Me: (7:27) Woot!
Nichole: (7:27) looks like rains comin
*Here’s where the texts start to fly*
Nichole: (7:55) 70 (the highway they get to that is 30 miles from our house)
Nichole: (7:56) Had potty break on wayside

Nichole: (8:00) Lol
Nichole: (8:00) ponds r green
Nichole: (8:02) well that was a biggun! ooooo horsies!
*About this time I’m starting to become a little suspicious… there are LOTS more texts than normal, and they are a lot longer than they should be, if Nichole was driving. So I up it a notch.*
Me: (8:02) You know this could quite possibly end up as a blog post

Sure enough, they pull into the driveway 3 minutes later and confirm what I had been thinking.
They got themselves a vehicle that could fit the whole family, and they wanted to surprise us, which they certainly did!
It’s used, but they got a good deal on it and with all those kids, they needed something that would fit everybody.
And the texts from Corey? That was Nichole on his phone.
Sneaky little #&@*!
