Remix aftermath

I thought this should be shared.

After Sydney sent out the Hal Remix, Hal commandeered my phone to listen to it over and over again. Sometimes, his fingers would hit things they shouldn't, and he'd lose the video. And he'd desperately try to get it back by talking to the phone.

Luckily, he would click on the microphone icon, which would then transcribe some of his pleas. (Some emphasis added)

that's not working 
you're not working
so that's so I think you're having a hard time 
and I think you're running out of battery 
and I still want to watch that show sydney sending me 
you're not working are you 
maybe I should go back where I work 
okay I was going to do 
okay me okay I mean robot okay 

okay okay okay baby 
why go back for you okay 
funny send me games okay go back to sydney's
go back where you were please 
the song sings it please 
go back where you won't let me send rap song about stuff made out of grass 
please right now please do that right now please do that 
go back to that song please please go back where you were 
the song shimmy scented (Sydney sent)
please do that one now back

Not you again 
not you again but I don't like it 
I want to sing that song!

Hahaha. Poor kid.

Eric Comes To Town

Eric came to visit, and had some adventures:

- He got on the roof
- He licked a couch
- He used my leaf blower
- He sat in the hot tub. Twice.
- He herded chickens
- He did a puzzle
- He ate buffalo
- He was nice to our cats, even the dumb one
- He offered Theo a penny to climb into the movie theater fountain, but he didn't pay up
- He got my kids hooked on The Flash
- He went through a car wash
- He followed the maps I drew for him and never got lost
- He won Settlers of Catan
- He rode a bike to the library
- He and Theo got mauled by a dog and then Theo drank beer
- He helped me put things on high shelves
- He went to a hipster coffee shop
- He didn't get up too early
- He ate tamales from the farmers market
- He helped Lucy babysit Theo overnight all by themselves and he wasn't even scared
- He went on a very steep hike

- He made his bed when he left

I would definitely have him come to stay again.
