If eternity is true, they will carve it out of you

I read the other day that it takes the average teenager less than five seconds to write and send a text message. I can’t tie my shoes that fast or make a list of words that my english teacher would deem sophisticated. It takes at least forty seconds for me to realize my alarm is going off in the morning and another one hundred thirty eight to open my eyes. It only takes five seconds to send a text message. You could have probably written “I love you” in the time it took him to unbutton his shirt.
