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.
