Okay, adding this for the record:

DEB: (this morning when I got back upstairs to get ready for work) So, Jackster! After you went down to exercise, I [REDACTED BECAUSE TMI] and then went back to bed, only I heard something on my phone so I checked to see if it was anything important and then I went through Facebook. And Medium. NOT on the toilet, this time. Just thought I would mention that part. Also, tell Tre I said hi back.

Tre, Deb says “Hi” back.

Interculturalisticman, you posted afterwards, but I’m sure she’ll say “Hello” back to you too.

(Yes, Deb has her own account on Medium. She has full access to our account on Facebook, too, but she doesn’t post anything there either. No, I don’t ask why. My guess is that she doesn’t want to get into conversations with people online, seeing as how she gets into long text convos with family, and she feels like online correspondence with people who are not her boss requires a fast turnaround. With her boss, she always waits at least half an hour because (1) she’s off the clock, dammit; (2) it’s HER phone, and if the university wants to give her a work phone that’s fine but meanwhile she has no obligation whatsoever to have a fast turnaround, especially when it takes three days and two reminders to get her boss to tell her whether he’s available to have lunch with one of the trustees next week and until he does she can’t schedule anything else for lunch next week and SERIOUSLY would it kill him to just make up his mind when to have freakin’ lunch so she can schedule important stuff for him?)
