As someone who sends texts messages more or less non-stop, I enjoy one particular aspect of texting more than anything else: that it is possible to sit in a crowded railway carriage laboriously spelling out quite long words in full, and using an enormous amount of punctuation, without anyone being aware of how outrageously subversive I am being.
Texting is a supremely secretive medium of communication - it's like passing a note - and this means we should be very careful what we use it for.
Texting is a fundamentally sneaky form of communication, which we should despise, but it is such a boon we don't care. We are all sneaks now.
What one discovers in life, I find, is that one's personality defects don't come and go.
My favorite thing in the world is a quiz show, 'University Challenge,' so you can see what kind of sad person I am.
