[unfamiliar number]: “did you do your HIV draw today?”
I read it, confused. I’m not scheduled for an HIV test. In fact, I’ve never had one and can’t think of why I would need one.
I tried to figure out who the sender could be. It’s not a number I have in my contacts and, at the time, I didn’t even know where it was coming from, although I’ve looked online and found out that my unidentified texter is from Waco, TX.
A few minutes later:
Unfamiliar, but obviously very concerned Texan: “disregaurd till you get back”
Disregard? Hell no. I need to know more! I texted back:
Me: “Um… who is this?”
Almost immediately, I got this:
Texan: “Oh man sorry wrong number”
A wrong number? I mean, DUH, but still. What happens next? I have so many questions! Was this a one-time fling who didn’t use protection? Was it a concerned friend/relative who needed to know that the recipient was taking care of his/her health after being exposed in some way? Now I’m concerned and want to know that the person who was supposed to receive the original text is okay.
What do you think is the story here?
