Quarantining and Memeing

Jack and I sometimes only communicate through random images and memes. Here is our conversation the other day. 😂😷

But, before I get into that, I have to share with you the great April Fool’s joke I played on Jack.

I texted this to him:

me: Did you see the text I sent you?

Jack: What’s that?

me: I guess everyone in CT is going to re-do their grade over in the fall.

Jack: what do you mean?

me: So you’ll go back to 10th grade in September.

Jack: (really looking worried now) But how can they do that when we almost finished the whole year?

me: Because it’s just something they do for April Fool’s Day.

Jack: (the relief washes over his face completely) What the hell Mom!!!!

Hahaha. Right??

Anyway here are some of the things we sent to each other the other day. Enjoy!

me:

Jack:

me:

Jack:

Jack: Get it? Moscow!

me: (the gif prob won’t play. Thanks WordPress…)

Jack:

me: Is that you practicing Spanish?

Jack: No.

me:

Jack: Why is it so small?

me: Huh?

Jack: Never mind.

me: Ummmm… ??

Jack: Stop getting your memes on Facebook.

me again:

me still:

Jack: Stop spamming me.

And there you have it. Communication with a 15-year-old.

The way he memes

Just a few of Jack’s social posts to either give you a chuckle or cause you to worry about his deteriorating sense of humor. Mostly gross, sometimes inappropriate and occasionally mom has to say “remove that post” for so many reasons. He’s still learning.

The best meme I’ve heard is the ‘No one, not a soul” and then “insert random or funny here”. Not sure how it started but it’s catchy in the weird way that most things are when they are repeated a thousand times.

Hey, in the 80’s we used to say “he’s ranking on you’ instead of “he’s making fun of you”. And for us “jouins” (pronounces Jew-ins) meant someone was cute. “He’s such a jouins!!” And don’t even ask what a snoogie was back then. Ugh!!!

Our memes consisted of “I can has cheez burger.”

Things have progressed quite a bit… right??

……/.///

Jack: No one, not a single soul. YouTube recommends the 2018 best of compilation.

Jack: Do you smell popcorn?

Everyone: (holds breath)

Sighhh…

………………….

Mom meme:

No one. Not a single soul on God’s green Earth.

Mom: I could use another pair of boots.

OK Boomer

images

Jack and I were in the car this morning, heading towards New Haven and the Yale University Art Gallery. (You can see about a thousand photos I posted on Instagram and Facebook… geez.). Naturally I was listening to Post Malone, because I still realllllyyyyyy like him. I believe it was “Internet” that was playing (Post and Kanye).

For reference, the lyric is “Instalove, if ignorance is bliss then don’t wake me up, and I’ll probably be the last to know, because I don’t get on the internet no more.”

Jack: That’s a song for Boomers.

me: Huh? Why?

Jack: Because Boomers don’t get on the internet no more.

me: Sighhhhhh.

He didn’t even look up from whatever HE was doing on his phone when he said that.

And then we went on to have a great day at the gallery and Atticus, for brunch. Yum!
