Texting, while a very convenient form of communication in some circumstances (i.e. church, school, awards ceremonies, other circumstances where you need to talk to someone but can't whip out your phone to do so because it is socially uncouth, or times when what you need to say doesn't merit an entire conversation with pleasantries, like "hey, what time is the meeting tonight?" or "where's my [fill in the blank]" or other brief enquiries), generally, I don't want to have a conversation by typing on a phone pad. Small talk via text? not so much.
