Its time to share my opinion, and mine alone, on texting. I'm old school with regards to writing. Long flowing letters filled with information and emotion. I find Texting, cold, short, impersonal. I just can't get into it. I still try to type long flowing missives, but they don't fit in the space allowed. Guess that's the problem - allowable space.
I've never been one to respect borders or fit into anyone's definition of space, except, perhaps, outer. I think and live big; I talk loud; I take up my space and more. I exceed my own expectations and I hold others to that level as well. I see more than the words written and feel more than the message conveys and texting only leaves me wanting. I want a conversation, an answer and affirmation. Instead I am left with questions not answered; feelings not expressed; and doubt as whether the message was even received.
Beyond that frustration is one more . . . I am an English teacher trained in 4 years of Latin conjugations and 2 years each of Spanish and Italian. I hate, detest, deplore and scream at misspelled words. I know texting is shorthand, its meant to convey a quick thought or answer a short question . . . but it is extremely difficult, almost utterly impossible, to not want to send back a reply including the correct spelling of a misspelled word!
K, im dun now.
