Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, esteemed guest Will Arnett talked about Canadian Thanksgiving (did you know he’s a Canuck?), the return of Arrested Development (hooray!) and his current schedule (busy). But the most adorable part of the interview definitely came when he started talking about his mom’s texting habits. (It starts around 2:40 in the first video.)
When asked if he calls his family on Canadian Thanksgiving, Will replied that he doesn’t need to, as his mom frequently updates him on the minutiae of her life with mass emails that always begin “darles” (diminutive for “darling”). She also likes to text him when it’s 4am in LA to tell him she’s just had her second cup of coffee, as well as send single word texts like “DAMASCUS!!!!!!” which he must decode. I’m a sucker for pretty much anything anyone’s mom does, and I especially love it when they clumsily use technology, because it’s just so damn cute.
Come to think of it, it’s been a while since I called my own technologically-challenged mother. Thank you, Will Arnett, for reminding me that moms are the greatest.
And here is a bonus video wherein they discuss Will’s six pack:
