Okay. The funniest thing happened to me.
So in high school, I had this friend named Brady, and he and I shared a birthday. Every year on December 27th we'd send each other dorky text messages saying "It's our birthday!" and whatnot, and it was just a thing we did. But since I graduated, he and I haven't really kept in contact and therefor, the birthday texts stopped.
Except this year! This last December when I was down in LA, I was looking at my phone and I decided to send Brady a birthday text, even though it had been years since we'd even spoken. He responded kind of strangely, but I assumed he'd just lost my number and was surprised I was texting him.
Me: Happy birthday Brady! Hope you're doing something awesome!
Brady: who r u?
Me: It's Kristina! It's our birthday!
Brady: o. where r u?
Me: I'm in LA visiting my boyfriend.
Brady: have a nice birthday. how long u there?
Me: A week or so.
Brady: where do u live?
Me: I only moved to Seattle? Not too far from you.
Brady: o. we should hang out.
Me: Uh, maybe!
And then he just KEPT texting me. I had no idea why he suddenly wanted to hang out after not talking for three years, and I was pretty sure he knew where I lived since he works with Eia sometimes.. it was just weird. And then he texted me a few more times in the next two weeks, and I started to get so annoyed with him, that I just stopped replying. Until today.
Brady: I don't want u to hate me.
Me: I don't get it. Why would I hate you?
Brady: I have 2 tell u sumthin but I am afraid u'll be mad @ me.
Brady: I am not who u think I am. My name is Sirak & the first time u txt me, u wished me a happy birthday, & it was your birthday 2.
Brady: u were so nice, I didn't want 2 ruin ur birthday so I played along. i'm sorry.
Brady: Sorry, I feel so bad tellin u this, Kristy.
Needless to say, I didn't reply to him anymore at this point. But I am not really mad or creeped out - I think it's hilarious! Some guy didn't want to ruin my birthday so he pretended to be my friend for me. Hahahhaa. The fact that he kept pretending to be my friend for nearly a month afterwards is a little weirdtastic, but I can't really fault him for that either. I didn't reply very much, or tell him anything personal. And he came clean eventually. xD
So I dunno. Creepy, or kind of nice?
Probably just creepy. But still really, really funny. Oh Sirak. You probably don't have any friends. Poor guy, thought some girl who just magically appeared in his phone was going to be his new best friend or something.
Anyway, that was definitely among the most bizarre things that have ever happened to me. I got all those texts while I was with my family at Applebee's tonight for my brother's birthday, and I was reading them the messages as I was getting them. We were all cracking up.
That's my brother with all the Pokémon themed balloons I got him! I also got him a copy of Paper Towns (with the more boy-friendly cover) and this threadless shirt.
Now I am going to watch a movie with roomate!Justin because we're lame and spend many a Friday night on our living room couch.
