CATS!

I was in the middle of a text message conversation (why can't we all just go back to the postal service method of communication?) and my phone received a text. I looked at it, expecting to see a response to my last message, but instead I read the following from an out-of-state number:

"Thanks for signing up for Cat Facts! You will now receive fun daily facts about CATS!" [Insert symbols placed together and vaguely resembling a feline face]

I could really only think the following:
1. What.
2. Apparently a random person typed a random [my] number into a random daily cat fact text message service.
3. I don't even love cats.
4. Maybe one of my friends signed me up for this [and why didn't I think of that idea before they did?]
5. What is the area code for this random number? [It turned out to be a random enough state, so I concluded that it had no relevance.]
6. This is definitely going on the blog.
7. I guess it's fine that I wasn't told how to opt out & that I get cat facts every day for forever.

The whole situation was beautiful. Simply beautiful. And completely outrageous.

Later on I visited my friend's blog and read this.

And that is all I have to say.

Hahaha!! I laughed out loud at this:
"7. I guess it's fine that I wasn't told how to opt out & that I get cat facts every day for forever."
I knew, knew, KNEW I should have sent that cancelling text.
*sigh*
