I send messages in bottles. Every now and then I get a reply from this guy who says he's stranded on a desert island. He's a big joker I think....

I average three words per text. For a total of five texts in this life. My thumbs are as big around as a ball bat and I can pick up 2 basketballs at the same time with these huge hands. I was not made for texting. On the plus side, you know what they say, . . . "Big hands . . . . Big feet!"

I'll have people ask me why I didn't answer their text and are shocked when I tell them I don't have it enabled on my phone. At least I can never be accused of texting and driving.

Mom averages 1-2 per decade, though we're slowly improving that ratio.

"Sober... one or two. Drunk... I'll text until I pass out."

Posting on ljwonline is the closest I get to textin. . . . .

Texting has a communication value. I don't quite understand the reluctance to embrace it. Maybe it is the growth of the hermit population.

Let's just say I have an unlimited texting plan, and that's a good thing for my wallet.

I do a lot of sexting so much that my thumbs have calluses

I send maybe 1 or 2 per day but my teenage daughter averages 12k to 13k a month. Thank goodness for unlimited texting plans

zip,zero,nada. Don't own a cell phone. I'm sticking with my trusty land line as long as I can. I never felt the need to be that accessible to anyone. No call-waiting or any of that junk either. Just a phone.

5-10 per day, mostly when I'm driving.
