Texting Holiday

stop texting

So far, so good!!!!

I realize that waking up to a text which calls for a response or immediate action is sometimes like waking up to your dog needing to go out. (This is one of the reasons I don’t have a dog.)

Yesterday I sent a text linking my blog post about a texting holiday to my son and a few friends. Silence… With one exception, “Interesting. ..”

Ever been in a crowded elevator when someone breaks wind? Everyone looks around trying to pretend nothing happened. They just want to flee the scene.

BeFunky_quite texting

That’s been the response to my No Text Challenge.

But that’s OK. I’m loving it…so far.

I’m liking this alot! Should I come to the realization that some of my relationships are held together by little more than short electronic messages, better I find out sooner rather than later.
Texting is also a very sweet way of making someone’s day a little brighter by letting them know you’re thinking of them. I love that. But only if it’s followed by action.

Perhaps I need this hiatus as a wake up call to step away from my computer and get out in the world more often.

We’ll see.

I’m eager to see what I learn over the next two days, if anything.

I was contacted by OkCupid a month after signing up, telling me I was in the top 5% response rate and asking my secret. I was stunned. I was in my 50's! Beats me! It's not as though I posted racy photos or I was plagued by blinding beauty! However it served it's purpose,in terms of finding dates,but finding a mate? Not so much. Along the way, I had some pretty nutty encounters, some more lethal than others. While my blog started as a retelling of these amorous tales, it's morphed into a myriad of stories, including many from my time on the planet. They range from working with the amazing Henry Winkler, auditioning for Nadia Boulanger, an attempted assault by one of Al Capone's retired former henchmen, and offering a homeless man (who was also a convicted murderer) a place to stay for the night. While most of this is older material but I'm considering penning epilogues or postmortems from my post pandemic, post #metoo perspective, as well as sharing more. So many stories to tell! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!

  1. I will say, not being able to use my phone for the majority of the week was refreshing. I’m sure I’ll go right back to crack addict status momentarily. 🙂

      1. Argh…I totally need to get writing on this. lol Seriously, it was awesome. Phoenix smells funny, now, and I want to go back.

  2. That’s a great experience… I’ve done it sometimes and for a long time… my record, until today, was 2 months! 😀
    It’s amazing! 😀

      1. I had to Google phubbing. Great word! (I don’t speak Portuguese and translation want very successful.)

        That’s amazing, going two months without texting. What was that like? I

      2. Yeah. Thanks to google it’s easy. 🙂
        It’s peaceful! Don’t think in mobilephone, don’t wait for any SMS or call. Just perfect, back to old times, without any tech, without this drug. 🙂

      3. That’s very cool. I wish I had it in me to want it that badly. I finished the phubbing post btw. Thanks for the inspiration. I’d forgotten all about that guy.
