I got a text yesterday from someone asking me if I was going to the park. I said I wasn’t planning on it. They said alrighty, and that was the end of the conversation. The only thing that bugs me is that I don’t know who I was talking to. I didn’t recognize the number and I can’t figure out who it was. I never delete texts from my phone so I was able to check my history. It turns out I had a previous conversation with that number fourteen months ago, and they asked if I was going to work that night. I can only assume that it’s a coworker that I don’t care about. But that’s only a guess. I have no clue who the real culprit is. An anonymous text is an unfortunate side effect of modern technology. Caller ID can only take you so far.
