Five years ago, I received a call from a gringo that I once dated. We hadn’t talked in months as he got "white boy wasted" during our last date. Still, I was curious, so I picked up his call. All I heard was rustling.
El gringo had butt-dialed me — a common mistake that we’ve all made at some point in our lives. But sometimes mistakenly calling or texting someone leads to more than three-minute of rustling. For example, take the story of Kasey Bergh.
During a Denver business trip in 2012, she accidentally texted Henry Glendening, a stranger, instead of texting her coworker. Kasey and Henry began conversing, and they stayed in contact. Over time, they connected over literature, and their favorite music and movies. And get this: Kasey and Henry went to the same coffee shop on the same day at different times — and ordered the same drink! It’s like it was meant to be!
Unlike me and the gringo, Kasey and Henry fell in love. They made it official just this summer, when they were married in St. Louis in June — three years after the accidental text.
