Or perhaps I mean WTF.
One of the reasons I got on to Facebook and Orkut is to keep track of my boys ….. srsli. Cue for some spy flick music …..
And I truly fear for the future of our country when I see how these kids talk … er, write … to each other.
But this exchange really does take it to the ultimate …..

Editors Note : This is a boy who has totally pissed me off by repeating “Nothing” continuously to all my questions about his life and college. Humph! To continue with the conversation
Friend : letz meet at xxxxxx around xxxx
Kid#2 : okzzzzzz no prob
Please remember that I have graduate and post graduate degrees in English literature, write as a hobby and draft killer speeches and letters in my working life. Spelling, grammar, punctuation — these things are my world.
And my world? It is about to go flying off its axis if kids these days don’t freakin’ learn to SPELL!
Sigh. Ok. I’m dun now.
