Hi. How RU? I12cu tom. CU l8r, k?
I know this text/IM shorthand is all the rage and what the kids are doing these days, but really, it totally makes me LOL when I read this kind of stuff. It also makes me nervous, like some new pseudo language is going to come out, like Ebonics or Pig Latin, and everyone is going to start speaking it and behaving like some lesser species - like monkeys or maybe the French. Plus, if everyone starts talking and texting this way, I'm totally not going to be in the know, and I find this unnerving. I prefer proper grammer and language, thank you very much. So for all of you reading this,
@TEOTD, Pls JSN 2 txt tlk. Txs.
For all you highly educated folk out there, if you had trouble understanding me, you can check out text shorthand dictionaries here and here.
