Eliza: How come your text messages are either misspelled or in incomplete sentences?
Rick: Because it's too time-consuming to type out every word perfectly.
Eliza: That's true. Speaking of which, there was a National Texting championship in New York last week. The winner was a thirteen-year-old girl who typed 34 English characters correctly in 15 seconds!
Rick: I read that she sends more than 8,000 text messages per month.
Eliza: Clearly, her daily practice gave her the upper hand in that competition.
