I wish I knew the answer so I could help this kid out, but sadly I don't even know what the 1st church is. Honestly, though: Isn't this what Wikipedia is for?

I texted this person back and told him to re-send the text, but I hope he managed to do so before Leila was actually airborne. It sucks to be wandering around an airport, trying to figure out... was it American? USAir? Who knows?

Sometimes I'm jealous of other people. I believe that when other people receive texts at 4:12 AM on a Saturday night, those texts are pretty much guaranteed to be from their boy/girlfriends, texting to say, "hey baby im drunk an i love you so much xxx"

Other people never run the risk that their 4:12 AM messages will be Leila Texts from Hawaii (where the time difference means that it is not, in fact, 4:12 AM).

Other people have all the luck.

Sometimes, instead of sending a text like this to your friend Leila, you accidentally send it to me. And that is pretty much the 21st Century equivalent of "Smile! You're on Candid Camera!"

Once again, the Leila Texts teach me important things about sports. Apparently UCLA has a team called the Bruins. And apparently they are winning. This can turn out to be incredible conversational fodder.

"So, did you hear Tom Brady had a boy? And how 'bout them Bruins, eh?"

Honestly, with news sources like this, I don't know why I ever bother to read the paper.
