A Happy Text

High-tech gadgets can be used for plenty of good, true, and beautiful things.  For instance…

4:00 PM Friday:  My 11-year-old son is in the car with his mom, driving around town, doing errands.  I am at work, bored out of my skull, grading a large stack of tests.  He hijacks his mom’s cell phone to send me an urgent text message.  It turns my misery into a wonderful little moment.

Son:  Dad I just saw a sweet Nissan GTR and just about had a sejur!

Father:  Cool.  Not the near-seizure part, but the supercar part.

Son: I also saw what looked like a Shelby Mustang, Porsch coop,and masarati. i am so happy!

Father:  Think what will be rolling down the streets in heaven.

Son:  Aston Martins all day long baby!
