How to Text Your Friends and Enemies
July 29, 2012 10 Comments
Below, you will find a set of urgent messages I texted to Michiel on a Thursday afternoon. I had no way to mark them as urgent, like you can in Outlook. If I was sending these to her via email, they would all have huge red exclamation marks on them. Maybe I should have sent them in all caps. Better yet, I should get Michiel to send me her work email so I can send the urgent messages marked as such. That seems like the most practical plan.
My Messages to Michiel:
“Hey… What was that joke that girl told us at the bar?”
“There were two of them, like a set.”
“A set of jokes, that is. Not just a set.”
“Maybe something about a paraplegic giraffe was involved?”
“Are you in a meeting?”
“If you are in a meeting, and you think of the joke, can you step out? I really need this joke. I’m already committed to tell it and now I can’t think of it.”
“I’m in big trouble here.”
“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”
I finally thought of the joke by myself without Michiel’s help. By the way, Michiel… if you are reading… thanks for NOTHING. The joke had absolutely nothing at all to do with a paraplegic giraffe, but rather a quadriplegic deer. The whole thing would have fallen apart with a giraffe.
