Kita hasn’t been tanning at the salon since Tuesday. That was the day before our first date. That lovely watershed moment.
Now it’s Friday and it’s been three days since her last session. She loves tanning. She must be jonesing for some sunshine.
I decide to shoot her a little text.
“You’re looking a little pale…”
A minute later I get a text back from her.
“Coming tomorrow!! Or Sunday.”
“Lol! Hope your mid-terms are going well.”
“Thank you! I’m feeling so pale. (Sad emoji)
“I’m working all weekend so we’ll put you in for a nice long session in the bed of your choice!”
“You’re the best!!! Can’t wait to double dip!”
I respond with a GIF of some lady from TV saying ‘Yes!’ in a sunbed.
She responds with a GIF of a white guy closing the hood on a sunbed and when he opens it he’s a black dude!
“Love it!!! That’s going to be you!!
(I have something on my phone called Bitmoji. It makes a little cartoon character that looks like me and I can send it to people with different emotions and expressions and sayings. It’s really cute. The one I send her is my guy laughing and leaning against a big round emoji doing the LOL face with the tears.)
How cute are we sending little GIF texts to each other? (Sickening right?)
Three hours later I’m home sipping wine and watching one of my shows.
“Can’t wait! Your bitmoji looks exactly like you!!
“Should be fun! It’s going to be sunny tomorrow and Sunday is going to be very rainy. You should make a bitmoji!”
I don’t care which day she comes in. I’m working both days. I just want her to come in Saturday so I can see her sooner!
The next morning I get a cute little bitmoji that looks just like sweet Kita! It’s so cute. She’s got almond shaped eyes, a nice tan and blonde hair. Her character is saying: “Good Day!”
I love that she did what I told her to do.
“I’m seeing my sister today! Wish I could make it in. 🙁 But it probably won’t be in until tomorrow.”
“Super cute bitmoji!!! Best of luck to your sis rowing today! Perfect day for it. See you tomorrow.”
I then send her a photo of her favorite sun bed with the words: “Your chariot awaits…”
“Tempting me!! Can’t wait to get back in the (Sun emoji).
God… I’m falling again.
