Editor's Notes: have you climbed on board with the texting craze?

The other day I had a phone call from one of my sons. In a loud voice he said, "When did you learn how to text?"

I replied, "Well, I really don't know how. I've just sent a message or two to the college son when he was in class."

The loud son said, "Your bill was $37 for texting this month."

This took me aback for a moment. I realized that my 13 year old son has been using my phone a lot to text his friends. I related this information to my loud son.

"Oh," he said. "Now you can text as much as you want because I put you on the $5 a month for as much texting as you want."

"OK," I said.

I haven't used the texting since. This loud son takes care of the family phones and everyone sends money to him for their bills. Texting seems like a lot of work for such a small amount of communication.

There is one good thing about texting and teenagers on long car trips. It keeps them quiet as they text back and forth to their friends.

While the true beauty of texting has alluded me, I'm sure it is a very useful tool. I am still a little slow at it, but I'm willing to learn, not only that I have unlimited texting time to try it out.
