I've created a monster

As several of you know, my mom is now on Twitter. Sure, she can't figure out how to text worth a shit, but somehow, she has mastered the art of the tweet.

A few of her gems:

Right before she left Chicago

After she got home and realized her fridge broke.


Don't feel bad if she doesn't follow you back -- she frightens easily.

Anyway, I guess this whole Twitter thing has inspired her to actually check her email and get on IM. (I tried forcing Gmail on her, but she's not ready for the Goog. She's sticking with Yahoo for now.)

Last night, she got on Yahoo Chat and pretty much immediately after I said hi to her, this happened:


And there you have it. Fran has burst into the 21st century with a flurry of curse-filled tweets and awkward chats. Welcome, mom. Now you're just like the rest of us.

Very cool. I'm impressed by your mom. I'm still learning Twitter myself. It's the wave of the future apparently, so we better all jump on board. LOL. I hope you had a nice weekend.

Lovesfool: I know, now you can really understand where I get it from.

Brick: She loves you too!!

Complainer: I'm impressed with her too. I'm shocked that she's been keeping up with everything!

I loved her first tweet. I laughed at it, out loud, and were I someone who used the "LOL" it would have been an appropriate way to express my...expression. Yes.
