A Funny Text Day.

Have you ever gotten a text from a random number that you don’t know? You probably have. I did the other day*. But the funny thing about it was that it only said 3 words:

WHAT? I was like….what the? What am I not supposed to do. This was the first funny text of the day.

*I did later find out that a friend has mass-texted and a friend I did not know hit “reply all”…a tricky little technological error. Nonetheless, it kept me amused for a bit.

The second incident happened later that evening when a few friends and I had gone to a local bar in town. This particular bar puts your bill inside an old book when they bring it to you. I opened my book, signed my credit card receipt and thumbed through the pages at previous customers’ signatures or random musings and declarations of love. Then I saw something that caught my eye…someone had written towards the back of the book…something about turn to page…21…so I eagerly turned to page 21. On page 21, I found some complimentary words that read something like this: “You’re beautiful…have a good day. Turn to  page 45″…I was getting giddy at this point…it was like a choose your own adventure series…so I turned to the final page of this adventure and this is what I read (I blurred out the #):

What? Could it be? My name already written on the page?? Was this the divine romance fairytale I’d waited for my whole life? What were the chances that I would get that book, and that there would be a message that said “text me and say you love me”…with my name right next to it? That’s right…MY NAME> KATE….was already written there. WHAT THE? So, being the hopeless romantic brave soul that I am (with the encouragement of my friends)…and being the good instruction follower that I am…I texted the following: “I love you from *insert bar name*.”

This was the response I got:

HAHA. In one fell swoop my romance was over and I was told to “have a great night.” Awesome. We laughed a lot.

What a weird a texting day.

Here’s to hoping.

    The random text happened to me yesterday! But the story wasn’t near as serendipitous as yours. (Tangent: Serendipity is a must see movie!) Wonder how many times they’ve gotten a text. Sounds like a cute short story. Shame it didn’t turn into a fairy tale. 🙂

    Btw, I first read that as Kate sending the text at 10:30 in the morning! No judging, but that a lil early! Ha. Also, books to bring your check in?! Love. It.

    So sad your romance fairytale didn’t work but … Honestly, it’d be a great story to tell haha.

    So rude that the guy only replied that haha. Probably someone texted him before haha. 😉

    Well, that’s really random! So, it didn’t turn out to be a fairytale, but your texting adventure still made for an interesting story!

    Sorry it didn’t work out between you and the mysterious stranger. You’ll find your man someday. Also, how did you take a picture of your phone with your phone? I’m so very confused by that. Have a great weekend you two.

  8. Lauren M. Says:

    Not gonna lie..I had to read that over a few times to get what was going on. Your name was on the credit card, right? That’s probably how you got your name on there. I don’t know, i’m confused as hell right now…lol Anyway..cool story!:)

  9. Jaclyn Says:
