A sirenical young lady once texted me with the simple message "drink tonite?"  This threw me into a panic as tonite is a high explosive made of pulverised gun cotton impregnated with barium nitrate and I didn't think anyone knew that I was, at the time, addicted to drinking it.  I'd down pints of the stuff at a sitting.

It turned out that there had been a misunderstanding and she was simply illiterate.
