I have a friend who does a weekly blog round up of funny text messages out of context. I'm going to take a page from her book and do something similar but I'll provide a little bit of context- last week someone close to me was harmed in a way that is unimaginable to me. While these aren't all text messages and they aren't exactly funny, they do a good job of summarizing the past few days...
Me: I like having Opi around. She's like the canine manifestation of you. Blonde even. ;)
Marie: Omg. That is awesome.

Don't they say a conservative is just a liberal who has been mugged? I never imagined I would allow a gun in my home, let alone consider owning one...
And lastly, a text from one of my most favorite people on the planet.
Carly: And this is what I wanted to comment on fb but daniel said it was inappropriate: your dad has the power to guarantee this guy will be castrated, right? When is a better time than now to exercise the darker side of his ambassadorial privileges?
I didn't get to respond to you last night, Carly, because I was too overcome with relief. While I'm fairly certain that diplomatic immunity wouldn't cover that, perhaps his "ambassadorial privileges" would be able to obtain an official pardon for me when I do it myself.
Thank you for all your prayers and concern for the people I care about. Seriously, thank you.
