To pretend to text someone in order to avoid awkward face-to-face situations. This happens most often when talking to someone you don’t really know, or when you don’t want to look weird while waiting for the bus.
Long description, I know, but haven’t we all been guilty of this at some time or another?
Here’s an example from the book:
My crush, Addie, and I have run out of things to talk about, so I will pretext to avoid any awkward silences
Return next week for more.
That is all.
