SMS Mystery

I like texting.

I'm not a text-head with flying thumbs like every teenager I know, but I do send sms's fairly often, almost always to people I know.
Al sends me random wordy messages affirming me and my family for loving him, or offering scriptural admonition or encouragement but
Mrs Holt-Press is my number one recipient (and sender).

Our messages are usually administrative or functional, "What time will you be home?" "Can you pick up the kids?" etc I spell words out fully, I use punctuation, I choose my words carefully, I craft my messages so that they communicate effectively.

Yesterday however I received this message from name unknown and a number I don't recognise.

"If you were a placenta you would be a hot one".

I did not know how to reply!
I didn't know if a reply was expected.

How do you reply to being called a hot placenta?
Do you just accept the compliment graciously?
Is it a compliment?
I don't know.

Mate, maybe they meant if you were a babe you'd be a hot one. In this day and age most (teens) are that 'unknowing' they probably don't know there is a difference. But then again to be really cynical you'd have to wonder if the correct part was kept/disposed of at birth. Dave
