So I sent this to my friend Erika in a text message:
Alyssa: I’d just like you to know that I’m wearing the multi-coloured dorky beanie with string things you gave me one birthday. Can’t send you a photo, but boy, you would swoon.
… Buuuuut, she hasn’t replied yet. See, the thing about Erika: she never texts back. And when she reads your text a few days later, she still doesn’t text back because she thinks “It’s too late, the moment has passed.” I love her to pieces. I’m not all that great at texting either.
I did receive a message from another friend though:
Lucie: PaWpaw. Pawpaw! PAWPAW!!!!
Alyssa: Is it… pineapple?
Lucie: I love you.
Alyssa: You get me, I get you man.
Lucie: Yeah bro.
(we sometimes converse like teenage males).
