Best Text Ever?

By City Weekly Staff
Posted // July 14,2010 - What's the best text message you have ever received or sent?

Scott Renshaw: I avoid any communication system that discourages me from using the fully spelled-out version of a word. So FU txtrs.

Ted Scheffler: The best text message I ever received was a simple “Yes!” I’m not going to say what it was in response to.

Kelly O’Hara: I don’t speak Spanish, so I’m not sure if this was the the best or the worst but I received it the other day:

*Felicidades* megasorteos te informa que eres ganador de $60,000 y un TOYOTA 2010 llamar al 011502.58331077.. con el lic Luis fernando mendez.

I think I won a Toyota but can’t confirm.

Lia Pretorius: “I love you Mom.”

Jesse James Burnitt: “Un beso para tí.” From my lovely wife, Adriana, back when we first started dating. I still have the phone and the message.

Stephen Dark: Convicted thief’s eloquent text on house of an art-theft victim from story “Ripped Off”: “Dude wrote the book on how 2 attract a criminal element 2 your house. Dark as fuck … 5 foot weeds … peeling paint mail overflowing the box … scaffolding to a upper broken window etc looked like a fucking haunted house I halfway expected 2 hear organ music waifing [sic] through the nite air.”

Ben Rosch: “She said yes!!” Sent to Paula Saltas, the first person after my parents who I told that my girlfriend accepted my marriage proposal. The best day of my life to date.

Josh Loftin: From a reporter friend: “Apparently, your idea of an asinine opinion is another person’s idea of a midget stripper.”

From my 17 year old, last Christmas, when I texted him (the only form of communication that he seems to use)and asked what he was going to be doing over the week-end:"I don't know. I think Mom's getting married or something."
