Breakfast tomorrow or sunday? yummy
from a 248 phone number, Friday, October 10, 8:25 AM

Ideally one should never be awake early enough on weekend to have "breakfast." Your first meal on a Saturday or Sunday should be "brunch." However, 248 was texting at 8:25 AM, so she is obviously a habitual early riser.
hey. sent u an email. call me or write back!

Mmmmm no. This directive contradicts a commonly held truth: that you should respond to communications in the same medium in which they were received. If someone texts you, text them back. Don't call. If someone IMs you, IM them back. Don't email. And, for lord's sake, if someone emails you, don't call or write them back. Everybody knows.

Poor Gracie! Yesterday was like the day of depressing texts. Love and prayer to Gracie, too, okay?
I'm at work i'll call you when i get off. I'm sending you lots of love and prayers.

This sounds like a bad situation. I don't know what I'm praying for, 510, but, if I did, I'd send you lots of love and prayers, too.
Dang it, I guess me whole Sylar/Claire theory is shot.

A Heroes reference. I don't watch Heroes enough to get it. My best friend Alli does, but I don't think my best friend Alli reads this blog.

mire FWD: FWD:FWD: FWD: FWD: THe person u are meant to be with will txt u at 11:07 but if you dnt snd this to ten ppl then u will lose that person.
from an 865 phone number, Monday, October 6, 6:34 PM

Question: If I don't snd this to ten ppl (and, let's be frank, I'm not going to), will the person I am meant to be with still txt me at 11:07, and then I'll just lose him/her at some unspecified later date? Or will S/he not even txt me in the first place if I don't forward this ten times? I know these seem like insignificant details, but truly they make all the difference.
I aM In st louis Jake had a huge party at Home. john is furious & wont let lilly go to homecoming Tomorrow
from a 913 phone number, Saturday, October 4, 1:30 AM

It is my unique cross that I alone must bear to receive text messages at 1:30 on a Saturday night, and to hope that they are, perhaps, from a cute guy harboring a crush on me, only to discover that they are actually about a huge party and a Homecoming that I was not invited to. It's a long way down from my dreams to my reality.
Did u register 2 vote yet
from an 814 phone number, Friday, October 3, 8:08 PM

YEAH. DID YOU? Look, I know it seems all played out this election year, like yadda yadda yadda with the civic responsibility and whatnot, but SERIOUSLY IF YOU DON'T VOTE IN NOVEMBER I WILL MESS YOU UP. (This, of course, applies only to my American readers. The rest of you are off the hook.... FOR NOW.)
