Fadime yeni aldığı akıllı telefonuyla askerdeki Temel’e duygusal bir ileti göndermiş:
“Sevcilum Temel ; senu pek özledum.. ne yapaysun daa ?..Türkü çığrıyorsan pana sesuni conder, ağlıyorsan cözünin yaşuni, cülüyorsan cülen ağzuni, uyuyorsan cördüğün rüyâni, finduk kıraysan kabuğuni, hamsi yiyorsan kuyruğuni conder..uy cânum penum”
Temel çok duygulanıp yanıtlamış:
“Uy Fadimeciğum; helâdayum, sıçayrum. Saa ne cöndereyum da..?

ROMANTIC TEXT MESSAGE
An elderly couple learned to send text messages on their mobile phones. The wife, a retired college English instructor with emphasis on the Classics, was an unapologetic romantic; her husband, a retired salty Navy chief petty officer of thirty years’ service, was a no-nonsense guy.
One afternoon the wife went to the local Starbuck’s to meet a friend for coffee. While awaiting her friend’s arrival, she exercised her new skill by sending her husband a romantic text message: “If you are sleeping, send me your dreams. If you are laughing, send me your smile. If you are eating, send me a bite. If you are drinking, send me a sip. If you are crying, send me your tears. I love you!”
The husband responded: “I’m in the bathroom takin’ a dump. Please advise.”
