I know that I have been written about this subject in the past as well, but I’ll write about it again since it is bugging me a bit...
It is the never ending subject of TEXT MESSAGES (SMS).
WHY is it not as big here as it is in Europe?
HOW come so very few my age are texting?
Why hasn’t texting reached the masses yet? I really do not understand.
In my opinion, it is the perfect tool to keep in touch with people. If you call a person, you may disturb him or her (I hardly ever call anybody anymore), you will never disturb a person if you send a text.
It is SO convenient, so easy, so good…
BUT, why do so very few of my non-Swedish friends’ text me back? I don’t know how many times I have heard the words;
OH, I saw something on my phone, but I had no idea what to do.
Too bad, I think. Everything would be so much easier if I just could text you and get a response back.
Just the way I do it in Sweden. I text my friends and then we meet up.

IN Europe these days, you can do pretty much everything over text. You can book a ticket, your doctor or dentist will remind you of your appointments that way, same with your hair dresser.
You can order subscriptions over text.
Texting is the new way of life, for sure. It's been like that for a long time.
AND, it is something everybody does, from Lisa, 7 to Greta, 90.
I sort of wish it was the same way here. I text almost all my Swedish friends living in the US, and I text my mom, and my aunt, and my siblings and friends at home.
Sure, we mostly email each other, but now when my parents are at the summer house without an Internet connection we rely solely on texting.
I am the queen of texting…If you send me a text I’ll get back to you within minutes (IF I am near my mobile phone, that is).
Karolina and her friends are big time texters, to a point where it almost becomes ridiculous. But, I guess that is the way kids are everywhere.
Do remember, this is so not for the under 25 crowd only. No, it is for all of us to take advantage of! Both young and old.
Come on people, text more!!
It is fun!
Quick and SOOOOO convenient….
Today I am going to get my hair cut and highlighted…Maybe I’ll show you the results later on. I have decided to go a tad bit shorter, and a tad bit lighter…
AND, man what a thunderstorm we had this morning!! Followed by masses of rain (like we need more...)
It is still thundering as I write this, but when the storm woke me up an hour ago I thougt I had paparazzi standing next to my bed snapping photos, that is how viscous the lightning was. Annoying...
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!
