My husband and I send each other texts now and again. They’re not a substitute for speaking to each other face to face or on the phone, but a needs must action in our very busy lives. If honest, they fall roughly into two categories:
- From my husband to me – can you text me all the events we’ve (he means you’ve) planned over the next few weeks so I can get my calendar up to date?
- Me to my husband – can you get me [insert item name] from the shops please when you go shopping (because I HATE shopping)?
There used to be a time when we didn’t have texts to fall back on to communicate our needs … surprising really that we’ve lasted this long together.
Must dash . . . my phone’s buzzing . . .
