“thumb war”…it is “SomeThumbing”

SMS: Text Messaging Gets Redesigned

the message came and I did fly

with my thumbs down from the sky

Prometheus you may be the star of fire

but my thumbs are everyone’s desire

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz

over the keys my thumbs flew in a breeze!

words running here and there

texting… texting don’t you dare

the send button jumps at me so quick

lexicons I must pick!

but before I can execute the send

there you are with a message again!

    • thank you! Yes, I laughed and laughed as I was writing this poem…and yes, I do believe we did have that conversation! And I have that conversation with more than one person — because I still am very slow at texting! LOL Hope you and Andi are having a great time on your vacation and will see you both soon!

    • LOL…didn’t realize that i used the “old school phone”—added plus for the unconscious stream! thanks for pointing it out! Yeah–drives me nuts too!…LOL…I have been driven to use texting since I have three daughters—and I have noticed that “texting” is a way to communicate without communicating…another piece on that coming in the future…LOL Thank you for reading my blog! I enjoy yours also! and I admire you so for raising your daughter! You are a courageous man! I love your site! SO much to read and so many interesting avenues to explore!
