Something strange happened today. Each year, I tend to get three or four calls from close friends on Thanksgiving, and I might make one or two. But today, the phone never rang. Not once. It beeped though. Starting at 10am, I received no less than 6 text messages wishing me a Happy Thanksgiving. Not one phone call. This is a very interesting shift to me and it means one of three things:
A) My friends were afraid to disturb my festivities, and decided a text message was less intrusive while still conveying the message of good wishes.
B) Text messaging intruded less into their festivities.
C) My friends didn’t want to call, because I talk too much (quite plausible actually…)
But the outcome was sweet wishes and no guilt over missed calls, or cutting short conversations. I quite liked it…
The text message is quite an invention. So with that in mind…
