What are you doing
from a 407 phone number, Thursday, May 22, 7:35 PM

The problem with "what are you doing" texts is that they contribute nothing, and expect Leila to contribute everything. 407 offers no information here. It's not, "I'm cooking dinner. What are you doing?" In which case Leila could reply, say, "I already ate, and now I'm watching TV. What are you cooking?" A boring conversation, to be sure. But a conversation nonetheless.

Just asking the question, though, is akin to saying, "I want you you to tell me something interesting, but I don't want to go through the effort of saying something interesting, myself." Unacceptable.
