She's just got herself a mobile phone but doesn't want everybody to know. Unfortunately for her, Paul gets caught texting and has to won up as to whom he is sending the message to....

Short and sweet mini (almost Micro) comic that manages to have a laugh and get across some interesting observations on the foibles of mobile phone use in the 21st century: is it okay to talk on the bus? Which friends do you want to actually talk to any moment of your life anywhere that you might be in the world?

The artwork is rather nifty, with the characters looking attractive and funny when the call arises. Background detail is kept to a bare minimum but you hardly notice as the story takes you along for the ride. This is a nice short read, well presented and dealing with a topic that we are all having to experience.

In a Word: Engaging.
