03 Jan 13 Can a Garbled Text Message Save Your Life?

With textspeak becoming increasingly popular, and teenagers making it even more confusing by adding extra letters to some words, dropping letters from others, and basically make a complete mess of the English language, it can be difficult to imagine how a garbled text message could possibly save a life. However, for a 25-year-old pregnant woman, her confusing text messages to her husband actually did save her life. When the woman started texting seemingly random strings of words in response to her husband’s questions about her due date, her husband worried that something was up and sent medical assistance. Turns out the woman was having a stroke.
