So, OK, tonight while passing the kitchen, I hear this little "beep..twiweedateasda" sound from my cell phone while it's resting and recharging in it's little cradle.
It's not terribly unusual for me to get text messages from the grandkiddos at times. And even the occasional text-with-photo from one of the grown kiddos, but on a Sunday evening, it was unexpected.
I go to my cute little metallic orange phone (!) and checked - it said I had " one new message"...
Clicking to see who had written me, I see "baby houston is here! 7 lbs. 12 oz - 19 inches! He's so beautiful"
Oh, yay! Who??
Hmmm..I don't know anyone who's pregnant, or who's last name is Houston, or living in Houston or who would be naming their baby boy Houston...
Which brings me to my dilemma. After asking Mr. B if he knew anyone having a baby, living in Houston, or last name of Houston, or naming a baby Houston, and he said ...
..."what are you talking about??" ...that I wonder what to do...
Do I text the person back, saying, "uh, I think you texted (that looks as weird as it sounds saying it..) the wrong number..." and wait to see if I have, in my advancing years, actually forgotten about someone I know who's pregnant, who's last name is Houston, who's living in Houston, or who's having a baby boy named Houston?
Or do I call the number and be totally embarrassed if I actually recognize the voice on the other end??
Or....do I just blow it off and go to bed...and if it turns out that I do know someone who's had a baby on Super Bowl Sunday named Houston, or surname is Houston, or is living in Houston...
..and just tell them, "Gee, I didn't get that text....are you sure you sent it to my number???"
Ah, the dilemmas of the modern age...what to do..what to do..
