Okey, so before I continue with all the yummy stuff that's been going on since we came to Sumbawa (and trust me, it's goooood) I just have to say: Parents!
No, I'm not pregnant. Yet...
But thanks to the Internet (yeah I know, sounds like I'm 70 years old and just discovered the fine art of Internet and phones) I still get to experience a bit of home. And this goes out to a certain woman that I call "my Mom", whom I LOVE dearly, for sure, but she, as the busy and efficient woman she is, has developed a new habit on how to reply messages on Messenger. Well... at least MY messages.
So here I am, on the other side of this beautiful planet Earth and stuff happens, and sometimes I just feel like I want to share it with my family, and especially mom, because well... she's my mom.
So I send her a looooong (sometimes only half-long) message about this event that's taken place, I tell her about what happened, how I feel about it, sometimes what she thinks about it, bla bla bla.
And, you know when you have a conversation with someone (because come on, it's 2017, that's pretty much what we are having, only through our phones) and you want some feedback on what you've just shared because where I come from, that's how you have a conversation (a k a dialouge). But what she does, and I don't know if this is part of her being more "efficient" as she puts it, is to send me 4-5 emojis with either a heart, a thumbs up or a laughing face... WHAT?! What does that even mean?
Sure, if I asked her "can I call you at 5?" and she sends me a thumbs up, I get it, but here I am, exposing myself to one of the people I trust and love the most. I put my soul into writing about this event, and all I get is a freaking emoji!
Haha, I'm sorry mom, I love you, til and after death, and this is of course written with an enormous amount of humor and love towards you, but I just find it so hilarious. It really just adds more to the typical image of you. I guess that all I want to say is: I miss you mom, and I can't wait til we actually can spend real time together and talk, about anything on Earth and beyond.
So, I guess I'll just find a heart and a thumbs up in the comments below from you after you've read this but that's alright ;) Regardless, I love you! See you soon
