Konversations With Kids: Christopher’s First Texting Lesson

So for Christmas my kids wanted socks, clothes, makeup and ITouches. If you think something called an ITouch is obscene, it’s not. Essentially it’s an IPhone without the phone part. But other than making phone calls, they do everything an IPhone does. And they aren’t cheap. But Stephanie convinced me that the kids would really, REALLY like one for Christmas so…Santa made the delivery. And so far, it’s been kind of fun having them. The kids text me and send me pictures and today Christopher sent me a video and so it has been kind of nice to see what goes on with them while I’m on the road.

So today Christopher was watching the UC Bearcats bowl game vs Vanderbilt and was giving me a play-by-play when I decided to give him a little advice on his grammar. The following are our texts…

And I didn’t hear anything from him beyond that point…

Hey…just because we’re texting doesn’t make it okay to use incorrect language. Gotta set a precedence at some point…might as well be now! LOL (which means “Laughing Out Loud”…if you didn’t know. That’s “texting speak”…)!

    I think you meant “precedent” not “precedence.”
    Bam! You’ve been grammar schooled!!! ROFLMAO. I’ll decline to explain that one 😉

    Hmmmm…not sure. The definition of “precedence” is “The order to be observed by people of different rank, according to an acknowledged or legally determined system.” The word “precedent” is “An earlier event or action regarded as an example or guide to be considered in subsequent similar circumstances.”

    I guess you might be correct…


  3. I believe that english will not be the same in 50 years! the written one!
