About This Texting Thing

Doesn’t texting seem invasive sometimes? People can get at you all times of day and night. When did it become expected that we be attached to our phones all day long? There used to be a time when people made plans to call each other. They didn’t call during dinnertime. They didn’t call you when you’re sleeping to ask “are you awake?” They didn’t ask you to snail mail them naked photos of yourself after one date. How is it that I’ve been texting since the ’90s and yet somehow I find text message protocol more confusing?
