And then texting took over the world

What's that I heard little blog, I'm ignoring you?
You're right and I am sorry.

This summer is proving to be one of the busiest in my life. Every weekend from last weekend through August 10th is booked, many of which are out or town adventures, on top which work is a Zoo.  And before you start sayin' 'woe is me', I'll stop you. It's not necessary, just wanted to let you know why I've been slackin'.
When Carly Rae almost took over the world last year with Call Me Maybe,
I was obsessed.  Yup, I am that mid twenties gal, who loves overproduced
 and over play music (and Akon).  Don't judge me. 

But the 'Call Me' part is what gets me. Really Carly? Call me??
Who are you trying to fool...we all know you mean to say text me.
Texting is where it's at, I digress.

All the scenarios below are solved by texting. 
Proof that texting has single handily taken over the world.

1. Someone calls you, you can't answer the phone, what do you do?

2. You are about to call you friend (Hi Nadine) in another time zone, 
but you want to be sure she has time to talk, what do you do?

3. You are calling someone who might not have your number, 
they don't answer (probably because they don't have your number), what do you do?

4. You're meeting your friend somewhere, you arrived first, 
and you want to let them know you are there, what do you do?

5. Your Mom leaves you a voicemail, but knows you will never listen to it.
What does she do?

6. Your prescription is ready, what does the pharmacy do?

7. You are running 5 minutes late for a meeting, what do you do?

8.  You see something at the mall you know your friend would love, what do you do?

9. You're alone in public, what do you do? (hence the GIF above).

10. Your credit card statement is out, what do they do?

11. You South West flight is delayed updated, what do they do?

12. You see something funny, you take a picture, what do you do?
 And a zillion more scenarios that prove, texting is taking over the world.
 So if you need me, text me.

P.S. This post by no means indicates that I prefer texting over talking,
there are many instances when talking is more efficient and enjoyable, and often preferred.


  1. Yes and yes. Although I do like a good phone chat sometimes. But when in doubt, text it out.

  2. Ha you are so right. She had the song all wrong. I have to be in the right mood to have an actual phone convo.

  3. SO TRUE! And all of a sudden I can not be alone in public without my phone. Just waiting for my Starbucks drink to hit the bar is agonizing. Umm... I guess I'll look at my instagram feed again, even though I just did that in line.

  4. i was a little behind in the texting world but do love it now!!

  5. Yes! I'm to the point where I feel awkward if a friend calls me. In my mind I am thinking, why didn't you just text me to set up a time to hang out? Talking on the phone? Weird!

  6. Well you I know a scenario where you call when you are on your way to get your nails did.. ;) MISS YOU!

  7. I HATE texting. I think because I'm super slow at it, so it takes 3x as long than to just call someone. Also, I'm a 90-year-old grandma, so that might have something to do with it.

  8. My texting obsession needs an intervention. I always chuckle looking at our phone statement with the amount of texts I send vs. the husband. I really should be embarrassed.
