from an 808 phone number, Sunday, January 20, 10:57 PM

I was in the middle of something when I got these texts, but, what can I say, I'm a sucker for long series of 1's (used on place of exclamation points). Plus, whenever a Leila Texter asks what's wrong, I feel compelled to text back to reassure them that nothing is wrong at all. On this particular evening, that made me the girl who said to her friends, "Be right back-- I need to go find some cell reception so I can text this stranger back." My friends nodded resignedly. It all makes me feel bizarrely heroic.
