I Don’t Do Text Message Conversations

Text Message 300x295 I Don’t Do Text Message Conversations

Well it is a Sunday night and I feel stuffed like Christmas turkey… I hadnt eaten all day and was still feeling a bit spaced out after my drunken binge on Friday night (I may post about this another time, but to be honest I probably don’t remember all the details so its unimportant), so just made myself a sausage and egg toasted sandwich alongside some coffee. It tasted soooo good but now I have eaten it… I am thinking to myself, “did I really need to eat it?” So unhealthy… oily… ugh… gluttony is a muthafukka!

So now I am somewhat bored… there is nothing on TV and noone interesting is calling my mobile phone… so here I am posting this blog…

I recieved a text something along the lines of, “How are you?” Now WHY OH WHY do people do this? I would never text someone, “How are you?” What is the point when you know that the answer 99.9 f the time the answer is gonna be, “I’m fine” or some variation of?

And if a person isnt fine they aren’t about to get into it in a text message. So anyway I texted back, “I’m fine”(or some variation of *oh how so fukking predictable*) and why did this muthafukka start trying to get into some conversation about my love life or percieved lack of LOL!!!

At this point I was not about to get into any text conversation at 12p a text when I have free calls so I just texted back (this was meant to be final mind you… let him know I do NOT do text conversations), “I know you are not trying to get into no damned text conversation.” Dude replies “no” and continues to ask another question! What the hell? If you want to have a conversation pick up the blasted telephone!

Now to me text messages are to relay a message or some type of vital information like:

Place of meeting, time of meeting, telephone numbers, addresses or if you just want to let someone know you are thinking of them but dont have the time or energy to call them…

Not no damned conversation. I find its usually guys who do this… although I do know one chick that does this too… I don’t even entertain that “how are you?” bullshit… and my boy only got a pass because he is super gorgeous with a super sexy voice.

BTW I just finished reading The Book of Sarahs I would definitely recommend it if you are into race issues. It is about a biracial trans-racial adoptee and her struggles with identity.

Anyway thats all for now… Billy Blanks is calling me! *PLEASE BILLY A LITTLE LOUDER!!!*

    The same thing could be applied to telephone conversations.

    “How are you?”
    “I’m good (fine), how are you?”
    “I’m good.”

    Nobody really cares about hearing the answer. It’s just a way to slide into casual conversation.
