I was surprised to see the SMS. The SMS contained smileys; surprisingly a lot more than necessary. The SMS displayed words that screamed out his style; always in shorthand and butchering the original words. But the words sounded softer and sweeter than the ones he usually uses. The surprise turned into bewilderment as I stared at the SMS. Then the spell was broken by the jingle of a new SMS alert. It was him again. This time, the SMS was short but not sweet. It read, “Oh Crap!”.
Then it dawned on me. His “special” friend and me share the same letter of the alphabet at the first position in our names. He had mistakenly selected my name while sending the SMS. Since he has learnt a lesson, he might wise up in the future even though I wouldn’t mind reading such SMS again in the future.
It is also a good reminder for us to be careful while sending SMS.
