Is it me? or am I the only one that has just started texting? Yeah, that's what I thought. It's just me.
When I moved here, my sweet hubby brought home a pink "pay as you go" phone. I like pink! That worked for me since I knew no one anyway. Who would I be calling? I used my land line to call friends and family and the cell phone was mainly for emergencies or for when I got lost in the English countryside.
As I started to make friends (ok, so I have 3 friends now! lol), they would text me. I quietly thought, it's much easier to just call me. I would, however, begrudgingly text back. I did it in that manner because I did NOT know how to set up the format to type the letters I wanted to. In other words, words I wasn't even thinking of would pop up and I had to learn how to type exactly what I wanted to say. It was so ridiculous how loooonnnggg it would take to txt 4 or 5 words. I know my one friend in particular was getting frustrated with my non-prowess in texting.
Magically, one day my cell phone was reformatted for me to start typing in the exact letters that I was pressing on. (Read: the kids were playing with my phone and changed it on me). It actually worked! I started to reply at a more rapid rate and even initiated some of them. Wow!! My friend was getting impressed at my newfound knowledge and desire to send messages.
Here's the kicker... I love sending and receiving little love notes to and from my hubby. Yay! And it is way more convenient to communicate with your friends that way. I feel so free now!
Now, if I could only Twitter. I'll accept any help you can give me.
