Text-messaging that is.
An hour ago I received a text message from Margaret in Fort Worth.
With a handful of text messaging experience under my belt, I decide to get fancy and return her text message with a text message: "Let's get together in August!" I type.
Ten minutes later I receive a text message from Nina in Las Vegas who responds with a text-message: "Sounds great! See you then!"
Quickly realizing my error, though relieved it is Nina I just invited to spend time with, I return a text message back to Nina: "Thank you for the birthday card!" I write.
Only to receive a text message back from Stan in New Zealand telling me he didn't know it was my birthday and didn't send me a card.
If this is an indication of what lies ahead for me today, I think I should just go back to bed and cover up my head.
