from a 719 phone number, Sunday, April 20, 9:34 PM

If I were like ten years younger and received this text, I would have spent ages puzzling over how this worked. I would not have for one instant doubted that we would indeed be in the Guinness Book of World Records. I would simply be unable to figure out how they tracked who all had sent and received this text. I might have imagined that there are tracking devices on our phones. I might have gotten an old Guinness Book out of the library to see what the previous record was. I was an astute researcher. But this did not make up for my naivete.
