Text or talk???

Everywhere I go, everyone is texting.

Used to just be the kids.  Not anymore.

I fought it for a good while, but now I'm on board..

Sometimes it  makes things easier, like when I'm out

makin' a grocery run, and Marianne thinks of another

17 things that we need. in addition to the broccoli, bread

and bug spray...

Sometimes it's just because you don't want to have a

conversation. Admit it. You know it's true.  Those people in

your circle that take 45 minutes to tell you how they're doin'

after you ask, "How're you doin'?..."

I could streamline the texting process a bit if I used

abbreviations more....

As a public service, here are some common texting shortcuts

for "seasoned citizens"...
