Define “Safe”

This morning while I tried to come up with a topic for today that wasn’t charged with cynicism (something that’s been a challenge for me lately), I received a sweet and flirtatious text from L’s Mother, quickly followed up by another text adding that the previous text would also serve to give me the number for her new phone. Both texts were unsigned, of course, and I couldn’t resist the obvious (maybe too obvious) reply:

That’s sweet, but what if my wife had read this message?

Naturally, I got one-upped.

I’ve heard she’s sweet, was the immediate reply. But has a tough time working [her new phone], so you’re safe!
