Niece: What r u doing?
Me: Working. What's up honey?
Niece: Nuthin. Bored.
Me: Are you at work?
Niece: Yah. Inventory. I'll b here all nite.
Me: You got plans this weekend?
Niece: Maybe. Dunno. Got school on Saturday tho.
We texted back and forth for quite a while, with longer and longer delays between her responses as she worked. Towards the wee hours, I finally decided to quit working and call it a night.
In the morning, I got up to find that my niece had responded to me while I slept. I figured I'd better acknowledge her response and subsequent question.
Me: Sorry about that, honey. I fell asleep. Yes, we'll be home this weekend if you want to come by.
Niece (several hours later): Who is this?
