“Like most fedora wearers, he had a lot of inexplicable confidence.”


“I hope you aren’t holding an ice cream cone against your chest, ’cause your heart just warmed—and your ice cream just melted.”


“Unlike phone calls, which bind two people in real-time conversations that require at least some shared interpretation of the situation, communication by text has no predetermined temporal sequencing and lots of room for ambiguity.

Did I just use the phrase “predetermined temporal sequencing”? Fuck yeah, I did.”

I listened to this (which was narrated by Aziz) and it was both interesting and entertaining! I even learned some stuff about modern romance, like: “The most popular time to sext is Tuesday between 10:00 A.M. and noon. Yes, we looked this up twice. Strange!”

  1. Hmm, interesting thoughts about texting vs. conversation. I, for one, don’t find texting satisfactory for an actual conversation…sharing of info, yes, but not much more. Thanks for sharing, and here’s mine: “SNOW ANGEL COVE”

  2. Sounds interesting and entertaining. I think of texting as the modern day equivalent of passing notes in class. Brief messages only. There’s lots of opportunity for miscommunication!
    My Tuesday post features The Beach House.

  3. I love that second one. Haha! That is too funny. This sounds like it would be a great one–especially on audio. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Sounds interesting but I’m not sure it’s for me. See what you think of mine: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-12n

  5. Definitely something different. Made me snicker too.
