R we suposd to write long explanations for every event for findleys project?
from an 831 phone number, Tuesday, May 27, 7:10 PM

This is an excellent use of texting technology. 831 doesn't want to call Leila, because then they will inevitably get involved in a long conversation ("How are you?" "Pretty good, you?" "Yeah, we just ate dinner." "That's cool." etc.), and 831 does not have time for that. 831 wants to focus on her homework. Yet she needs homework assignment advice from Leila. So what does she do? Text message! Brilliant! THIS is why the technology exists, you know, not so that people can duplicate message me "they look horrible" over and over again.
