Steve: we think about you lots
we’re surrounded by brown people (they are currently living as missionaries in Brasil)
me: oh my goodness! hello!
how are you?
baby here yet? (Shannon’s about to pop with baby #3 A.K.A Jordan)
Steve: good, but I lied, there’s seriously very few brown people here
me: whaaaat? how can that be?
Steve: NO, my little Brasileirinho is late, imagine right?
because we live in the part of Brazil that the Nazi’s are hiding to escape war crimes from WWII, at least their kids are still living here anyways
me: of course totally reasonable explanation.
how’s shannon doing?
Steve: she hops everywhere she goes hoping to shake Jordan out
me: hot sauce
Steve: no thanks
me: lol that’s what we always said growing up.. eat some peppers and poof… BABY!
Steve: can’t believe we missed you when we were back
Steve: she’s tried spicy stuff to
me: i know! that sucked :'( and I won’t be here the next time you come
Steve: i’ve got to go finish cooking dinner without letting any brazilian men see me so I don’t lose my man card
WHY? won’t you be there? you aren’t about to off yourself are you? is this a cry for help???
me: bah! no no no! lol
me: moving in 9 days
Steve: to where?
me: oh my gosh! lol thats awful
me: no laughing…. nebraska
Steve: WTF? for what reason? you know it snows there right? and is devoid of brown people
me: i know. i’m going to bring the revolution. i’ve accepted a job there. Director of the advocacy department for WMF
Steve: shut it!!!
me: i will not!
Steve: congrats, that’s sick awesome!
me: thanks! now go make dinner
Steve: turn your skype on if you’re home tonight
me: will do. hug your wife’s belly for me
Steve: no, it’s off center and creeps me out
i’ll shout to it for you
I would just like to point out that Steve was my very patient freshman bible study leader when I was a 17-year-old anti-religion, uber-feminist, hippie activist in her first year of college. He is a HUGE part of the reason I have a relationship with Christ today. I’m sure you can see why… wisdom out the wazoo!
