So normally this would be “Tax Day” but because of “Emancipation Day” in Washington DC falls on Saturday (and all the federal employees having a day off on Friday) the dreaded day has been extended to the 18th. There’s your random trivia for the day.
Now on to the fun. This one is a question, and yes, I would like you to actually answer in the comments. Kthnx
What is the weirdest text message you ever got? Or sent?
Mine – a text from my daughter while she was playing at a friends house. “Mom, can I shoot a b b gun?” Umm… the number of thoughts that went through my head in 3 seconds ranged from “what?!” “you’ll shoot your eye out” “girls don’t shoot b b guns” “is there parental supervision” “why?” and “please be careful”, just to name a few. After a couple more messages back and forth it was established that there was indeed supervision, and they were being safe. Turns out the “target” practice only lasted about 5 minutes after the message was sent. And no eyes were shot out.
So you now it’s your turn. Comments are now open.
I’ve sent plenty of weird ones! I don’t know about weird ones I’ve received, but the most annoying was from my wife when she said she was playing hooky from work and going to SXSW instead. You see, she had been complaining for weeks about having too much to do at work, then took a day off to see music shows with her friend. Oh well, what can you do?
