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.

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.

  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. 🙂

    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.
