On the Sunday at Eve Vegas, I got a text message from an unknown number. It said, "You back yet?"
I left a "?" behind. I had given my number to a few people so I had no idea who was messaging me.
They never responded. I didn't think much of it until I received a message this evening during a lull at work that said, "Hey faggot" from my unknown number.
There are a lot of ways to respond to that. I decided to do the simple thing and say, "Good chance it is the wrong number" in response.
They responded, "No its not."
Now, I got mischievous. I will admit I was interested in what would happen if I talked to someone that greeted me with such energy as I felt in that hearty "Hey faggot" I received. I've seen amazing text message conversations before and I wondered how I would do.
Yes, you have to look at the pictures. We conversed on my phone but I pulled it out of my hangout chat for hopefully easier reading. I tried to cut and paste and it was an ugly mess.
I have no idea if he believes it is his friend or not in the end. I felt we bonded during this process. He is willing to come visit and I do believe in the end, I guessed his name correctly.
I also realized that someone may accuse me of talking to myself. That is kind of a fascinating possibility too.
