When Parents Text: Hurricane Sandy Edition

Written by

An impending sense of doom among parents as Sandy approaches

As Hurricane Sandy continues brewing, so do the fears of our concerned parents. What better way for those who love us to communicate their anxieties than via text? So, in the spirit of, Bwog wants to know what ridiculous/ominous/grammatically incorrect things your parents are texting you! Below are some texts from the Bwog staff’s parents; leave yours in the comments section!

“Close window tonite [sic]…be careful of near trees…tree limbs can fall…do not go down by riverside…flooding river.”

“Do u need me 2 bring u food. i can bring food.”

“You’re from Florida. You’re a Hurricane Veteran. This is nothing.”

“Fill your bathtub with water so you have water for the next few days.”

        You're a kinky little minx!! I like scat play as much as the next guy, but I haven't tried water sports!!! Now, I have played momma bird baby bird before and I LOVE it. It reminds me of that time when I performed a little angry dragon with your little brother! Did you know that he likes anal play? Oh, do you like bokaki as much as your father does? I bet you do. Would you let me probe you with my sticky little fingers? You should come over right now and say hi to your mother! She's over here making me some Sandy sammies. Oh, your mom wanted me to let you know that you're a whore.
