I like to text.
Don't get me wrong, it is not a substitute for real face to face or voice to voice communication.
But it is still fun and still has it's place.
It is a good way to ask a quick question and get a quick response. Or, leave a quick love note to a friend when you don't have time for a full conversation, but want to let them know you are thinking about them. And it is sometimes the best way to communicate with those teenagers in your life when you don't want a to see a roll of the eyes, hear that grunt in their voice, but need to exchange words with them.
It can come in very handy as a flirtatious device between you and your lover.
Like I said, "it has it's place." Don't use it were you shouldn't. But have a little fun with it.
The "techie" world would be so proud, I just blogged about texting.
