OMG Indeed!

I am a texter. B. is a texter. Our friends B. and M. are texters. We each send several hundred texts a month. Many to each other. Sometimes when we're in the same house. Even a time or two when we're in the same room.

If only I had known I could make money with my quick thumbs ...

Teen pockets $25,000 in texting contest

Thirteen-year-old defeated nearly 200 other competitors in Manhattan

NEW YORK - 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.

Pozgar defeated nearly 200 other competitors at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan to become East Coast champion. She then beat West Coast champion Eli Tirosh, 21, of Los Angeles texting the message: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidoucious! Even though the sound of it is something quite atrocious. If you say it loud enough you'll always sound precocious."

She estimated that she sends more than 8,000 text messages a month to her friends and family.
