A Text Message from my College-aged Daughter

This is a true story…

Mer: I’m at the pet store…can you put money in my account? I’m gonna buy a yellow lab puppy.

Mom: ARE YOU CRAZY??? Why aren’t you in the library working on your 100-page paper that is due on Wednesday?

Mer: Just taking a little break. Do you think you could deposit $700 in my bank account in the next five minutes? Okay? Thanks!

Mom: Sorry. Can’t hear you. Going through a tunnel (and yes, that is a metaphor).
