I am pretty sure I have posted this before, but it wasn’t as good quality. So here it is again.
Anyway. Story time.
Once when I was mad at my sister I decided to text her and apologise. (Please do not scoff at my apparent insincerity (i.e. “HOW could she think texting a proper way to apologise to her sister?!”), I had just gotten dropped off, or we had soon separated after our disagreement, or something of that nature, which made texting the quickest way of communicating.) Anyway. It was a stupid situation. I don’t even remember why I was so upset, just that I was crabby for probably a less-than-good reason, and that I truly do love my sister so I should repent.
So I wrote out my text:
“Hey, Sarah… sorry I was such a crabby pants”
But the technological miracle of predictive spelling quickly corrected me:
“Hey, Sarah… sorry I was such a arab pants”
The word “crabby” was not yet added to my phone’s vocabulary, but I neglected to spell-check myself, so I ended up with “arab.” I caught a glimpse of the incorrect word as it sent, and quickly sent a second text clearing up the error. The mistake caused my sister to laugh and reply:
“Hah I like arab pants better. :)”
And all was forgiven.
To this day if we are crabby we will refer to our arab pants and giggle, which quickly takes the heat out of any situation or disagreement.
….I miss my sister. :-/
