Yesterday, while I was sending a flirtatious text to a boy, a car passed me in the top lane and honked. I glanced over and saw my sixth grade teacher waving vigorously. I waved back, and the car rolled on.

When I got home, my mother said in her most concerned voice Churchrat, do you know anything about this?

There was a message blinking on her machine. My sixth grade teacher had called my mom to tell her to tell me that driving while texting is unsafe.
