A Talent I Will Never Have

Yea, I know kids these days love "texting" messages on those new fangled cell phones or on those tiny keyboards of palm pilots... yet how they can do it so fast with just their thumbs is pretty impressive. Although I will never take the time to master such a skill... from the Indy Star:
OMG! Thirteen-year-old Morgan Pozgar, of Claysburg, Pa., was crowned LG National Texting champion on Saturday after she typed "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" from "Mary Poppins" in 15 seconds.

"I'm going to go shopping and buy lots of clothes," the teen said after winning her $25,000 prize from the electronics company LG.

Morgan defeated nearly 200 other competitors at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan to become East Coast champion and then beat West Coast champion Eli Tirosh, 21, of Los Angeles.

She estimated that she sends more than 8,000 text messages a month to her friends and family.
Did you catch that last part? 8,000 a month?!?! Aye!
