When Sisters Text

My sister and I have been known to have silly fun with each other via text messaging. We've had ridiculous conversations about cats in French, we've re-worked the lyrics to the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air song to make it about communist Russia....gosh I wish I'd screenshot that.

Something along the lines of... "In west part of Moscow, born and raised, in the Gulag is where I spent most of my days!..." It was hilarious fun. {And best sung in Russian accent.}

Well, a couple weeks ago I texted my sister about a little gift she'd gotten for Pax when she was in France this past spring. Just go with me here...

I thought it was funny that I used the word monopolized, and started dropping corny board game references. I thought I was pretty clever. 

At this point, I honestly couldn't figure out why she was rambling on about it. 
Too early in the day to be drinking and texting. I was getting confused. 

I think I was frustrated at this point, that she wasn't getting my cute board game references, or playing along like she sometimes did. 

Then I call her "MOM" because that's what our mom is always doing. Fretting if she buys one daughter lunch, she is sure to mail the other daughter $10 to keep things fair. Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit, but mom is obsessed with making sure we both feel equally loved.  

I think I'd given up at this point. 

What tomfoolery is this?

Go on, scroll back up and read the first word of each text. 
I'll wait. 

...did you?
Then you can see what she did...

If you don't know what being "rickrolled" is, you can read about it here

It's the meme that revived Rick Astley's career!

Nice, Bea. 


  1. OMGOSH of course I had to scroll back up and read each first word and by the time I got to 'let you down' I KNEW it was Rick's signature (one song wonder) tune!!! What a hoot!!! and I so got your gaming references!

    1. Haha! Glad you get the joke :-) It was funny to ME for sure.

      Yep...I got Rick Rolled GOOD!
