When Parents Text

This is a fun book of somewhat embarrassing texts from parents from all over the US. Based upon the very popular website, When Parent’s Text. The biggest challenge we faced was figuring out a visual look for the cover, since the site itself was very basic and pretty much all text-based. In the spirit of the book, I’m going to post one of my dad’s first texts to me:
DAD: Testing my texting ability.
ME:  Got it! Now you just need to master
the art of emoticons ; )
DAD: I figured it out:-):-(;-):-P=-O:-*:OB-):-$:-!:-[O
I dont know what they mean.
Classic Dad.
