Mensagem:  I had to click my way around till I got to this definition, part of which I pulled right out of the top of my small, scanty-haired head.

Texting a.k.a. text messaging or person-to-person messaging or p2p messaging involves some typing usu. on the miniscule keyboard of your cellphone.

"FYI, 13yo skool grl is nu US txt mssg chmpN" -- Can any of you translate this statement?

(Anyway they run a texting contest in the US, and this year's winner, a fast-typing, 21-year-old girl from Pennsylvania, excelled all other contestants for the 25,000-dollar prize money. Not bad!)

Thank you.
