first, some background. i've been pestering a certain cute cute_divya on twitter for her phone number for a while (yeah, i know, it's something i love to do ;)). so after atleast 2 weeks of badgering, she finally DM'd me her number. sms conversation follows:
(if you don't know already, k = me, c = cute_divya)
k: So you finally have my number...or do you? Am I texting you from my friend's number? You shall find out shortly! :O
c: And how can u be sure this is my number? What if its a friend's phone that i've temporarily borrowed? :P
k: Hehe that's exactly why i'm using my friend's phone. Everyone else just gets my number directly...you don't, because u hesitated so much. Say hi to ur friend :D
c: Yeah he's really excited to talk to u. He's just waiting for ur call. He thinks ur hot. U can communicate with him now that u have his number. :P
k: Nice! Hope he doesn't sleep too late. I find late night conversations exciting! I'll have to call him from my own phone though ;)
c: His preferences are slightly 'different', u see. :P
k: Hehe different from me? I think not! We're both looking for the same thing, and I know it! Does he live with his parents or alone? I'm so excited already!
c: When r u calling?
k: You know what, you ask too many irrelevant questions. Give the phone back to your friend. I'll sms him, and I can dm you on twitter! What's his name btw?
c: Ummm.. :o i don't know.
k: Hehe...you don't know your friend's name? Wow, you amaze me! How did this happen?
c: Well i was making all that up, so couldn't think of an appropriate name for a gay guy. U got me there.
k: Oops. Well, say hi to my friend varun. This is his number. I'll text you from my phone when i'm done with work later today ;)
k: What ok? Say hi properly atleast! He's wondering why i've taken his phone away for so long! And i'm treating him to compensate for all the smses i've sent!
c: Ok hi varun how r u? Hope everythings ok with u.
k: hi divya i m gr8 .how r u ?
c: Hmmm i think u should stick to DMing me.
k: i dnt kno wht is tht .its ok i dnt wnt 2 trubl u .kris told me 2 trubl u .let it b .bye .

c: Yeah he better treat u for misusing ur phone like this :P and no ya i don't have much balance in my cell to keep smsing. But u can follow me on twitter.
