I’m playing EQ2 last night, killing giant animated metal statues and skeletons when my phone buzzed with a text message.
"Yo u get the wrath yet"
This puzzled me. I didn’t recognize the number. Teresa had been out with the girls for dinner and had recently returned, so I asked her through IM if she knew the number. Nope, she didn’t. "Are you mad at me about something?" I ask. "Should I be?" she returns. The answer to that question, friends, is always no.
I had no idea what this person was talking about so I texted back:
"Wrath of what?" Yes, I used punctuation in a text message. My little hold out for civilization as we know it.
"Ur mom did u even get yelled"
Two things I know now… 1) this is a teenager, and 2) it’s the wrong number. I really considered some evil responses here, but finally decided on:
I figured that would be the end of it. But my phone buzzed again!
This was too good to pass up. I sent back:
"No … This is Chandler’s Mom."
Almost 10 minutes passed until I rec’d:
"Oh sorry is this his phone"
I sent, "Not anymore"
I didn’t get any more messages.
