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.
