This girl should hook up with the 608 area code girl who was so bored at the library last weekend, and then they would both stop being bored. That would kill two birds with one stone.

It seems wrong that this girl should be very very bored, though. What dance class gives you time to text? This is obviously not like advanced ballet here. Maybe it's a social dance class. Whatever it is, they should really be working the kids harder.

I find it funny that, when people are bored, they text their friends (Specifically their friends named Leila). I mean, I do the same, all the time, so I absolutely relate. But I still find it funny. What did humans do when they were bored before the advent of texting?

Sometimes the Leila Texts make such little sense, out of context as they are, that they could practically be written in a foreign language.
Other times, they actually are written in a foreign language.
It can be hard to figure out which is which, but I'm pretty sure this is an example of the latter.

Hey is 85 a wk good 4 a house cleaner?
from a 909 phone number, Thursday, September 6, 9:17 PM

My God, I have no idea. How many days a week is the cleaner coming? How big is your house? Of course, even if I knew the answers to these questions, I would not know what a good price is for a house cleaner. If it were a manicure, I would tell you: $10-$15. If it were a vodka cranberry at a bar, I would tell you: $4-$7. But a house cleaner? I would call my mother.

It fascinates me that there exists some Leila (in California, it seems) who would KNOW these things. Some Leila who, when her friends are getting housecleaners, are like, "You know who we should ask about this? Leila. She is like the expert at pricing out cleaning services."

If I ever become rich enough to get my own house cleaner, hell, I'LL text this Leila to ask what I should be paying. I would be grateful for her advice.
you best be ready for the smack down! Haha

I'm not sure how I would respond to this text, if I were the intended Leila. "Oh, I am ready, don't you worry." Or, "Ahh! No, not the smack down!" Or, "You'll never get me!"

Text message flirtation is not my forte, apparently.
