Texter And Wrong Number Rekindle Flame On Election Night 4 Years Later
When Obama was elected four years ago, Renée Krulich, a staff member of Seattle-based alt-weekly The Stranger, received an accidental text from a stranger. The exchange turned out to be a serendipitous moment of triumph and random connection between the two — both proud of their country on that historic moment.
Krulrich decided the save the text. “It became the oldest thing on my phone and sort of a great story to tell people and show them. To me it summed up the spirit of the elections that year. Strangers/citizens coming together and voting with conviction and rising up to celebrate that win,” she told The Stranger.
This Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning, Krulich successfully reconnected with the texter to celebrate another victory. Check out all the texts over at The Stranger.

They say laughter is the best medicine, and six months ago I found myself highly medicated, that is, I remembered how to laugh.
If we are not happy now with ourselves and what we are doing then what the hell makes us think that we will be happy or satisfied later?
I remember the grass tickling my bare legs and the stains on your shirt, and you smirking at my excitement before your tongue swirled pralines and cream into my mouth.
