Things I’m Doing: Not Texting for the Rest of October

Some have called me foolish. Some have called me crazy. Some have told me they could never do it and wouldn’t even try. And if you know me, you know I love my smart phone and I love texting. I’ve talked to people at parties about how I think text messaging is better than talking. I liked texting so much, I didn’t even want the iPhone or any device without a QWERTY keyboard with actual buttons.

Note: I’ve since gotten an iPhone and I still hate the keyboard, so I use Dragon Dictation.

But I’ve decided …I want to talk to people. I don’t want to be known as “the guy who always sends a text.” And I don’t know that’s what I was becoming known for …but still.

From now until the end of October, I’m not going to text anyone. It’s been three hours since I made this decision, and I’m being taunted and ridiculed, but I will not be deterred.

Why am I doing this? I don’t know. I do things. That’s all I can say.
