a random text thread
some poor punter from Kentucky texted me randomly this morning. here's the transcript (all spelling and punctuation kept the same for continuity sake):
KY: Who's this?
me: Perhaps you should look in a mirror and ask yourself that. I can't tell you who you are.
KY: Thats cute......then why don't you tell me your name and mine as well
me: Apparently my label is "cute". But I couldn't tell you yours as I'm not really into limiting a person or idea by naming it.
KY: Hahaha I didn't say you were cute it was sarcasm for wat you said. But when are you going to give me a name....??(I don't know how to type upside down question marks, but there are 2)
me: I already said I don't limit things by naming them. So I won't give you one, but you're welcome to give one to yourself.
KY: I already no my name but you have a name you were given so wat do your friends call you
me: Oh many things: Hey you. Oh gracious, serene and beautiful one. Dude. You know, the usual.
KY: Well wats the name your parents gave you
me: "are you sure we brought the right kid home from the hospital?" I know its long, but its what's on the birth certificate. People call me "kid".
KY: Lol smh so when are you gunna stop giving me the run around in tell me your name
me: I just did. Kid.
KY: Ok well tell me how you got my number
