Missed Connections

We've all received wrong number calls. They're not completely uncommon. I've even gotten the occasional wrong number on my cell phone. But wrong texts? Those are rare indeed. I've gotten one in the past, something about someone needing to reschedule a nail appointment. Not sure what that was about, but I let them know they had the wrong number. I was rather amused. Here's tonight's wrong texts from "Massimo":

M: Celeste is this u? Its Massimo
Jaina: Wrong number. Sorry.
M: Oh sorry to bug u
Jaina: Np

I much prefer wrong texts to wrong calls...wrong texts can be so intriguing and entertaining. To the two I've received (both within the last 6 months I believe), I've replied to both, letting them know they have the wrong number. The nail salon one realized they had the wrong area code. It was rather amusing. But seriously. I have to wonder about Massimo and Celeste. First off, the name Massimo makes me think of The Wedding Planner. Great movie. But that's beside the point. How did they meet? Why was Massimo trying to reach her? How did Massimo get the wrong number? Did Celeste meet him in a bar somewhere and give him a fake number to let him down easy? (not that I condone such action...because it's going to hurt the guy eventually and lying is not okay) I wonder what the real phone number is, if it's just a number away from mine. So many questions that will never be answered. I could write silly stories about the whole thing. Hey, that's not a bad idea. Maybe I should concoct stories about Massimo and the elusive Celeste.

Oh I feel a blog series coming on. Don't worry Gramma Ann, I may even get so into my story weaving as to take pictures to go along with it! Either way there will be plenty of pictures coming on here. :)

I get wrong texts every now and then and I always end up getting into a long conversation with the person... maybe I seem friendly over text?

Funny, Jaina. I get occassional wrong numbers on my cell, but don't bother to answer. But have never gotten a wrong text. Massimo and Celeste seem to have sparked your imagination. Got to run. Going to eat Chinese today.

LifeRehab-Haha, that's fun. I bet you sound very friendly. :) I've never gotten into a long conversation, but I at least like to let them know that they had the wrong number so they don't think the person they were really trying to reach is ignoring them or something. I bet some of those conversations have been interesting.

Renie-Wrong number calls on my cell I don't answer...pretty much if the number isn't in my phone already or I don't recognize it, I don't answer. If someone really needs to talk to me they can leave a message so I know who it is. They most definitely have. I think I'm definitely going to write stories about them :) Mmmmm...I hope you enjoy your Chinese! I love Chinese food. :) Have a great day!

I was thinking that! That you should write their story. Very intriguing!

Jaina said...

Momo-Thanks! I think I will. It'll be a fun exercise :)

Totally! Massimo and Celeste sounds straight out of a soap opera!
