Text message from me: Do you think Casey Anthony is hot?
Text message from Scott: Who is that?
I should stop here and tell you that Scott found a job! He’s out of town this week. This leaves me bored and streaming Kansas City’s KMBZ NewsTalk radio while slurping the last of the Ramen noodles.
I’ll stop, Scott. I’ll stop. No more Ramen noodle jokes, I swear.
Back to the text messages.
Me: Casey Anthony is the mom found “innocent” for murdering her little girl. But she totally murdered her kid. Remember? I think she lives in Orlando.
Scott: Show me a picture. Why are you asking this?
Me: Because this radio guy keeps saying the only reason Casey Anthony’s story went to national news a few years ago is because she’s hot. I just texted the text line and told him, “Uh, Casey Anthony is not hot. She went to national news because she murdered her child.”
Then I needed to make sure.
Cody said she agrees with me – Casey Anthony, not hot.
I need a confirmation from a guy. Is she hot?
Scott: Half those pictures are from her in jail. Of course she won’t look cute.
Me: Pretty sure top right is her before she killed her kid.
Scott: She’s cute/hot in that pic. But you’re hot/beautiful.
Me: Ha! So I’d go straight to national news if I were ever thrown in jail?
Scott: Not even collecting $200.
And that’s why I love this man. He’s still got it.
And we don’t have to play with Monopoly money anymore.
It wasn’t a Ramen joke, Scott.
