OMG I just got a
txt from my BFF Jill!

But right now it’s
dinner time, and parents
don’t like phones at the table.

Secretly… sneakily… and
without being noticed, there
is time to slip a quick look.

“Hey gurl :D, wanna come
2 my house 2nite?”

Peeking out of the corner
of my eye, I manage to
thumb a few words.

“brb, ill txt you
when im done
wit supper =)”

“Jennifer!! No phones
at the table! We’re
eating dinner!”

Yeah … yeah … whatever.
Good luck getting a teenager
like me to put their phone away.
