Speilberg and Scorsese

As I've well-documented in the past, Audrey is obsessed with my iPhone.  I've been known to chuck it at her when I'm desperate to finish a call on the home phone, make dinner, or just to generally get her off of my back.  

One time, a certain friend-who-shall-remain-nameless-until-the-paragraph-after-next gave me crap for getting texts from Audrey at like 3:37pm.  She gets home from school on average between 3:30 and 3:35.  I'm certain that I was in the middle of a mission-critical task like wordsmithing one of my patented bon mots over at Big Daddy's blog.

When I get my phone back, it is always a treasure trove of Audrey-o-bilia:  texts to my friends, scripts written into the Notes app, an outbox full of virtual cupcakes and sundaes that she made with her games, and of course lots and lots of pictures and videos.

Lately she has started to text her videos to people, including her BFF Grace Anne's mom.  As it happens, Audrey's latest scripting obsession is a tall tale of Grace Anne's about "Grace from The Adventure and The Village and Luke, the baby leopard seal".  Or words to that effect.  So now Aimee is not only tormented with hearing this from Grace Anne, but she also gets to hear Audrey's version via texted video.  Thanks technology!

I have no less than 30 videos on my iPhone that are some variation of the following...



Not to be outdone, Aimee sent me one of Grace Anne's recent masterworks that she claims to have 58 versions of on her iPhone.  It starts out kind of oblique, but stay tuned for the plot twist at the end...


"Waaaaaaaaait a minute!"  That's my favorite part.  If "Crown In a Box" doesn't deserve to go viral, I don't know what does.

  1. While I have been on the receiving end of some of Audrey's texts, I have never been fortunate enough to be sent a video.

    Btw, get that poor girl some toys so she doesn't have to play with a box all day long.

  2. I think she needs my cell #. I could use some daily entertainment.

  3. I love to hear Audrey's sweet voice...plus she is hilarious. But, what I need to know is why, when the little video is all done, some soft porn images come up for me to view. It's just hurting my brain, Lynn, 'cause I know you aren't like that. Now, if it were on my blog, you know, I would get it...

  4. In an attempt to get Ryan to simmer down during our last Dev Ped appointment, I gave him my phone to play with. He thought it was fun to record the doctor. She seemed very uncomfortable with this. I'm not sure how I should take that.

  5. @BigDaddyAutism: You couldn't handle videos from Audrey. You have to preview and delete 12 clips of the back of Lynns head while she's driving to get one good gem from Audrey. Oh the road rage and nose "scratching" I've seen!

  7. I think I have a budding Audrey. He's forwarded my cell calls to a catering company in Puerto Rico.

  9. These videos are great!! I think it is time for Audrey to get her own iPhone and unleash the greatness that resides within her! Someday we will be seeing her Autism Abstract films at Sundance! Until then, can I borrow her to answer the phone when the bill collecters call?

  10. Aah, yes, those awesome cupcake and sundae apps are the only reason I ever get anything done! WAY too much time on those in this house, I'm sorry to say...
