Response to 20 Ridiculous Texts From Perfect Strangers:
I texted a few family members that I was spending my entire Xmas break laying around reading trashy novels. I was mystified when I got a response asking who I was until I remembered my mother-in-law had changed her # but I hadn’t updated it in my phone. I apologized to the new owner of the number, only to get another reply asking how old I was. I replied 57, thinking that would be the end of it. No, then he wanted to know if I was single … more than caught off guard, I admitted to being married. Did I miss my big chance?
