Famous Last Words


What’s up with all that texting? There seems to be some secret fascination about it that I fail to grasp. Everybody has a cell phone in their hand and while you are conversing with them they are texting.
My Grandson, Tylor (age 15) was over here the other evening and he is sitting on the couch and I thought we were having a normal conversation. I finally asked if he was texting while talking to me. He said, "I’m texting with two people, Grandma". Those same people can sit in the same room for thirty minutes and not say a half dozen words to each other.

Do they just like pressing the letters on the phone. Some do it while driving a car. So many are doing it that they had to pass a law making it illegal to text while driving. I decided to try it the other day to see if I could do it without getting addicted to it. So I typed a message to Deena, one of my granddaughters. It took me about 30 minutes to type out. "Wats up Doc? She answered back instantly, "Nuttin much". I couldn't think of anything else to say. I can assure you , I’ll never get addicted to it. I think it's a kid thing and will soon lose it's appeal.
