I Text

.
I am hip. I text. Just like a teenager.
.
It's nice. It's like when answering machines were invented and one prayed to get the answering machine when calling someone because they didn't want to get trapped on the phone, they just wanted to let someone know something.
.
Now I can just send a text to let someone know something without committing to a long phone conversation.
.
I love it.
.
My latest cell phone, we thought, did not have what we call T9. You may call it Text Predictor. Where the phone predicts the word you are about to type to make your text experience quicker. When I first got my phone I looked and looked for it and couldn't find it. Then I put the experts (my teens) on the job and they declared that my phone was without.
.
I was back to the long and slow way of texting.
.
After over a year of that, I was trying to do something on my phone recently and suddenly I had T9. I have no idea how I got it and I have no idea how to stop it. And this time (on this phone) I don't like it, because the only punctuation I can use it a period. No question marks or commas or my fave, exclamation points!!! Among other issues.
.
So the other day I send my friend a text, and forgot to read over it, which now I must do, because sometimes it predicts a word you aren't meaning to use, and her response was a big fat HUH?
.
And then I looked back and saw why. I had sent her this very message-
.
Ok. You can rate of a seat he not. She does that post of stuff all the time. Haha
.
Maybe I am not so hip after all, eh?

I finally got used to my predictive texting and even though I was checking what I was saying, I have sent some oooops too. but somehow I hit something that made me lose the T9 and I can't figure out how to get back to my T9... maybe I accidently sent it to you????
