It all started with this text, last night:
Wrong number text: I THINK I JUST MADE THE CEDAR HILL MIDDLE SCHOOL TEAM!
Me: No response
Wrong number text: Oook so I found out today tht I made the team im so excited 8-D
Me: I think you have the wrong number, but congratulations!
Wrong number text: Wat
Me: I don't know who you are. Wrong number.
Wrong number text: Whos this
At this point, I gave up. I didn't feel like texting back and forth with someone who doesn't know how to spell the word "what."
Also, I've been reading the Police Beat of our local paper, and I've copied and pasted some of my favorites for you:
1100 block South Clarizz Boulevard, midnight Thursday, someone vandalized a car with pancake batter. No suspects.
Burchell Villa, 56, of 620 S. Walnut St., arrested Wednesday by Bloomington police on preliminary charges of battery, battery by bodily waste and public intoxication; booked into Monroe County Jail at 1:30 a.m. Bond set at $5,000 surety, $500 cash.
Complete Nutrition, 2894 E. Third Street, 5:39 p.m. Sunday, four juveniles shoplifted bottles of hormone supplements that employees warn should be sold in a set of three and could cause serious health issues for juveniles. Officers plan to review surveillance video and take inventory of the stolen items to find the suspects.
1000 block South Walnut Street, 3:27 a.m. Friday, officers responded to a complaint of nude people in the area and found a 21-year-old man and 20-year-old woman who were "engaged in inappropriate behavior." They were both arrested. Alcohol was involved.
700 block West Country Club Drive, 1:52 a.m. Monday, after feeling ill effects from snorting bath salts, a 22-year-old woman was taking to Bloomington Hospital for evaluation.
320 block East Second Street, 3:07 a.m. Thursday, a woman reported that someone threw a rock through the window of her car. The car door was left open, but nothing was missing. She also reported finding feces on the steps near her apartment door.
2100 block North Walnut Street, 2:18 a.m. Saturday, officers stopped a man pushing a stolen vehicle down the road. The man, 56, was arrested, but said his own car had been stolen as well.
Oh my gosh. I get the biggest kick out of this stuff!!! Who vandalizes with pancake batter? Who steals a car after his own car was stolen? What the crap? Does this weird stuff occur in regular cities too, or just small towns?
Inquiring minds want to know.
