TEXTS MY MOM SENT ME WHILE WATCHING "GONE GIRL"

Mom promised she'd let me know when she finally watched it
  1. The heads up
  2. The Shaye Simms shout-out
    She's a really nice friend of the family. But you definitely don't take a selfie with her when your wife goes missing.
  3. The "two knives" reference
    This is shorthand for an inside joke we have. "Two knives in a tree" is Mom-speak "Do not fuck with me or I will fucking hunt you by lying in wait in a tree with two knives. You won't know you're dead til you see the blood spurting from your throat onto your shoes."
  4. The turning point
  5. The love fest
  6. The monologue
    At some point my mom starts texting Amy's monologue and I text her back the next lines from memory... This went on for awhile.
