The very first text I ever sent was to my friend from work. We were both obsessed with the show “The Office” at the time and there was an episode in which Jim was imitating his co-worker Dwight. Jim had on the same yellow shirt and tie, glasses and said “Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica”- something Dwight might have said.
I decided to text that very message to my friend, as my first-ever text message.
“Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica” it read.
Apparently he had not seen the previous night’s episode and texted back,
“I think something is wrong with your Auto-correct”.
I didn’t have the time or energy to write a reply, since the first one took me all of 8 minutes to compose.
