I’ve held off for the last while.
Watching those who receive a text message and then reply as they keep up a conversation with you.
Funny thing. That’s exactly what I did today.
I could justify it by saying that I’m new to this thing. Or that I really needed to get back to the person. Or that . . .
Having said all this, I lost my head. Off I went. And with my text messaging, I sat across from another diner. While he finished his chicken fettucine Alfredo, I tried to put together a text message (it took that long). After I was finished the text message, I was left to eat by myself, with the bodies across the table staring at me.
So, lesson #1.
Text message to your heart’s content, but not in front of someone.
