Texting does have its uses

Especially when it comes to comforting friends.

J was practically glued to her phone yesterday and today,until I finally asked her what all that furious texting was about (I assumed it was about Jimmy.) It was not. It was about Elliott, a friend of Jimmy's who is now in the hospital with what sounds like bone cancer.

He was bored between chemo sessions, I guess, and wanting to talk with friends. So, he did. Okay, I saved my "aren't you texting too much" lecture until later. I asked if she wanted to swing by the hospital to say hello, but she said that would be weird, he'd feel weird, so no. She'd rather text, and he'd rather receive them than let's say, balloons.
