Mom’s Virtual Farm Addiction

Backstory: My mom has become addicted to the Facebook application Farmtown.

Mom: R U home today? Can you get on farmtown?
Me: I’m at the office today … sorry :(
Mom: OK I’ll plant some grapes to harvest tonight. I’ve got my personal laptop hooked in to the guest network and can get to it so I’m playing
Me: You’re like an alchy looking for their last drink
Mom: Yep and ur one to talk…little miss “text me when you get online” :)
Me: It’s a hard life as a virtual farmer I tell you what

Do You Tweet?

mom: hey, how r u today? do you tweet? i have no idea how to get tweeting………sounds like some people are addicting to whatever it is. i guess i shouldn’t bother bec i don’t need to get addicted to some other ridiculous hobby like that.
me: hahaha. where did you hear the term “tweeting?”
mom: on tv this morning. just asks the question, “what are you doing?” who cares i suppose……seems weird to me but what do i know. i’m just hanging out and trying to stay out of the way of getting into having to do something. so just relaxing.

Love, Mom
