I can't even put the 17 year old me in 1962 into the present year of 2013. Maybe you are able project the "teenage you" from the past into the now and imagine what your friends would be texting about you! Just a funny little exercise.

Very awesome - feeling young! Having never grown up with texting or a cell phone, I wonder how my life would have been different. I think my mother wouldn't have worried so very much about me. Cell phones would have given her relief from that.
Now this is why I LOVE hubpages. I had NO IDEA what wagging meant!!! Can teachers wag school? (I might have called in sick years ago when my throat was not really killing me dead - i.e. I could have stuck it out, but called in sick.)Is that wagging?
lol.Yep, that can count as wagging. Now you're getting the idea! It would be more authentic though if there'd been no phone call and no hint of a sore throat.
Stick with me Billie, I'll help round out your education! What do you call it?
Cute! I think teenagers are probably texting the same things. Let's hope! (I like the hanging out at the movies where your guy worked). We should have some teenagers tell us what they ARE actually texting. That would be a cool comparison.
This dating thing seems to be universal :) Fun! If only we knew then what we know now - (or maybe not - tee hee)
Connorj - your answer is so meaningful and deep I really don't know how to respond. I have loved being in college and wish I could go again - except for the tremendously difficult projects and dead lines. It's all such a mysterious journey, huh?
Yes Billie, it is a mysterious journey there are so many "coincidences" that invade our time.I believe they are pointing us in the same direction. I have found that place to ponder and discount a whole "lotta" stuff to be the college I profess at...
Cute! I never thought of food. Kids text about food? Hmmm. But OMG, that means my friend Sandy could text me if she saw the quarterback, Ted, who I was secretly in love with, down at the grocery store so I could ride my bike over and flirt!
Oh, I see...because we're more mobile. I thought my mom who worried so much in the 60s would worry less if I could have called or texted her, but maybe she would have worried more because of more dangers. Maybe the dangers were always there?
I can relate big time. I actually understood what "wallflower" meant when I wore a flowered dress to a dance at our girls' school. The boy's school came, and I stood against the wall so long I literally became one of the wall flowers!
