Lynne Truss quotes

Subversive Texting

“As someone who sends texts messages more or less non-stop, I enjoy one particular aspect of texting more than anything else: that it is possible to sit in a crowded railway carriage laboriously spelling out quite long words in full, and using an enormous amount of punctuation, without anyone being aware of how outrageously subversive I am being.”
     — Lynne Truss

As I walked along the brick streets in the area around Park Avenue in Winter Park, I noticed this young woman sitting on a bench, texting. So intent was she on her communication that she never looked up as I approached, knelt down in the middle of the street and captured this shot. She was obviously working on a lengthy text, as she never stopped typing as I casually went about getting a photo. I wondered if she was being subversive, insisting on “laboriously spelling out quite long words in full, and using an enormous amount of punctuation”, as Lynne and I do.
