who taught my mom how to text? OR once a wolf, always a wolf

This has been going on for some time, my parents texting me. But never is it as excessive as it's been during the last week of little J's intense playoff games:

- Bottom 7: J gets pegged. Wellman gets walked. New pitcher. Big hitter Romero up.
- Deep deep hit to center. And it's...caught. Two runners. Feher hits a runner in with a single. Next schulte is out at first but advances the runners. Ross is up. One strike. One ball. Pops a foul ball and it's caught. Game over. 15-16 GV.
-Game tomorrow at 1 at eldorado. Our opponent: Green Valley. I'm so sick of them.

I'd be surprised if any of you made it through that. I can't believe I typed out all of those texts. But yes, I know who all those boys are. And yes, I've been completely glued to my phone during these games. And completely bummed that they're over. They played Green Valley for the 3rd day in a row today. And they lost. It's really sad for me. The Dirty Dozen deserved a better end. (there really are only 12 on their team. And most of them have been together since Little League days. It's just so endearing.) And it just had to be Green Valley. Gag. I am so sick of them. Anyway, I hope the Wolves all recover in time to properly enjoy Senior Prom tomorrow night.

Oh yeah, way beyond T9. She sees it as a challenge to send out perfect texts. Like, when I asked if her phone had any games, she counted texting as one. So classic.
