I got a call a couple of weeks ago from 336-xxx-8144. Then another couple of calls. No message.
I had no idea who this was. Didn't recognize the number or the area code. I searched the area code. Someone from Winston-Salem, NC. Don't think I have any customers there. I txted Chris in Raleigh. Was he in Winston-Salem? Does he know anyone there who might be calling me? No luck. Reverse lookup showed nothing.
Two days later, a txt from my 336 friend made things clearer.
From 336xxx8144:Hey. My m0ms goin t0 slp. She sed she will talk t0 yu 2m0r0.
Interesting...I haven't talked to any moms from Winston-Salem lately.
From Me:I don't know who this is.
The waiting game began. It was electrifying. Finally, a second txt pierced the darkness.
From 336xxx8144:This malaika. Fats daughter. My mutha jus calld yu.
So I guess I'd like to apologize to Fats and Malaika for not recognizing their number. Guys, if you're reading this, give me a ring - I miss you!
