Texting and Thanksgiving Etiquette

Thanksgiving! Another holiday upon us. Another opportunity to stuff our faces with a seemingly viable excuse why we completely discard the rules of our diet. Its also another day to gather with family and friends and give thanks.

But the holiday also brings out the texters in many us. Many of us texters are pounding the tiny keys from morning to night. Telling everyone we can possibly think of "Happy Thanksgiving!" "Happy Turkey Day!" "Happy Tday!" and "Gobble Gobble". This will inevitably lead to further chatter and distraction. So, whats the problem with this? Being fans of "text messaging", what is the proper etiquette. We thought about it for, a second, and here is what we came up with. DO NOT text while...

1. Eating your Turkey Dinner. (We wouldn't want you to get turkey grease on the keys, its hard enough to push the keys as it is.)
2. Having a conversation with [insert relative here].
3. Driving your vehicle. (Many free-range turkeys were already killed for this holiday.)
4. Carving the Turkey. (Safety first stubby.)
