Unfinished Project

Midway through my senior year I decided to begin a "text of the day" log. I'd pick the single greatest text I got that day and write it down. After some long period of time I'd compile them all and post something great.

Summer came, and I stopped texting folks and folks stopped texting me. The texts that I had managed to collect, however, are simply too good to not post. They deserve to meet the purpose of their creation. Beautiful in their awkwardness and appropriateness*, these marvels of modern communication made my days and weeks a little brighter. Thanks friends, for being worthy of text of the day honors.

*"appropriateness" wins the award for ugliest appropriate word ever.

There's a good chance you won't actually get most of them. Most were pulled from the midst of good conversations. I think they're all capable of standing on their own, however.

Here, for you today-- Christopher Thatcher's texts of the day.

First text: "Hahaha :) you're a cutie"
Second text, 30 seconds later: "Don't read too much into that... Haha."
