High Noon: Mystery Texts

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/Rebecca Nappi, SR. More here. (SR file photo)

Question: What types of mystery texts do you receive?
