Text me if you can!

Say it Rah-shay By Nov 23, 2008 9 Comments

I love me some text messaging, indeed I do but I have the sneaking sensation that some of my most frequent texter are happier to communicate with me through a short misspelled sentence than by actual human connection.
What the holey hockey mom!
I have a friend who seemingly cannot talk more than a few minutes but loves to text me several times a day. I am privy to such gems as ‘thanjs’ and ‘wgat r u doin?’ and ‘im chillin how r u and urs’.

I was OK until my friend Mia told me that I was very curt on the phone. She says that my phone voice and my personality were so very different.

I had to stop a while. I wasn’t offended but I realized that I DO transform myself from nervous Rachée to ball-buster when I spark up a telephone conversation. Perhaps my curtness DOES make it easier to send me an odd ‘what r u doin l8r’ instead of a phone call.

I prefer to blame my cell phone. My service is so lousy that I tend to keep conversations short. Sorta.




I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.

    That’s hilarious, and I feel the same way. Although, I couldn’t abreviate if my life depended on it. I have to spell almost everything out. And if I were to start abreviating I’d feel like an imposter. I’ll give it a try:

    I like to text because the boys don’t get nutty like they do when I pick up the phone. Kind of like I’m incognito!

Your turn! Tell it to Rah-shay!
