That only works in America. I know that when I try to send internationally to Chris I have to worry about staying below.. what is it?.. I think it's 140 characters. It might even be as low as 120. Anyhow, my point is that not all carriers (or whatever it is) have the same limits.

Cute concept, though, I'll give ya that. What brought that up?

I ran out of characters in a long text to Jasmine, and had to go back and reword a few things. It was a lot like the little edits you make to get a drabble to fit in 100 words, so...yeah. SMS drabble.

I do that every time I text someone internationally - fill it up to 160 characters. My cellphone counts down now from that number (instead of having me count because it allowed me to use nearly 400 characters)

Hey, I spend 15 pesos per sms, I may as well make it count, right? ^_^

Locally though, the shortest ever SMS message I ever send?
