The Note-Texter


John McNally


I didn’t used to do this, but I take notes now. By notes, I mean that I text myself cryptic messages like, “This was how I learned to court.” Or: “Chase her with scissors.” Or: “My mother didn’t like him but felt sorry for him.” In between these cryptic notes are grocery lists: “Black cherry soda, milk, Purina Cat Chow, orange juice, jelly, ear medicine for dog.”
