“May all good men hear the sound of my voice and respond to my pleas!” This first sentence was soon replaced with “Hey You” or just “Help”. Now it is “Ho”. It seems to me that our wonderful language, that can paint beautiful pictures, has degenerated to the point that a whole paragraph can be said in a word or two. So some of you may say this is progress. Yes, I suppose it is, but it is not as beautiful. I believe that our smart phones, tablets, etc. have contributed to the abbreviated language by the way people text and send messages. I had the texting part of my cell phone turned off. I didn’t want to receive a text and sure didn’t want to send one. If they want to communicate with me on a phone, they should talk! Now, I love email but I don’t use any of those texting abbreviations. In fact, I don’t know what most of them mean. I write my emails like I talk (maybe not the best grammar in the world and without a spell checker, usually miss-spelled) with full sentences and paragraphs. To do otherwise would be to show disrespect to the person I am communicating with.
Maybe I am old fashioned. Maybe I am just stuck in a rut. Maybe I ought to listen to “hip-hop” or “rap”. Hell No, I am who I am and change is not easy for me. No, I don’t write in the fancy old prose, but I do enjoy hearing it and reading it.
Well, got a rush job finished for my old favorite customer yesterday and have to go see the new customer again this morning. Hope I can get his project finished up soon. Like I said before, if I had known it would have taken so long (been two months now), I would have not taken on the project. Still have some things I have to take care of on the new RV before I can hit the road.
You all have a great day now, you hear?
