Last night, as I waited for the "L" in Chicago, I called my husband in Spokane on his cell. No answer, but I got back an immediate text that read: I"m in a meeting."
My husband, happily retired since 2005, is never really in meetings anymore. So I texted right back: "Meeting? What???"
I got back a cryptic text that read: "985."
Later, when we finally talked, Tony said he had no idea what the texts were about. He didn't send them, though he found the record of them in his sent mail. HIs cellphone was never out of his range. The mystery might remain unsolved.
This morning, I imagined a movie based on people getting texts from the Great Beyond -- from heaven or hell. (Perhaps it's already part of some movie). Maybe the texter from the Great Beyond helps solve his or her own murder or texts the secret code to the bank account where he or she hid money and now the money can be used on Earth -- for good or evil. 985.
What text would you like to receive from the Great Beyond? On a more mundane level, have you ever received mysterious texts?
