Do you SMS?
Short Message Service (SMS) or "texting" has gotten so popular that I wonder how people survived before they had mobile phones. How will kids learn to spell if they're being bombarded with funny acronyms like 2L8, DYJHIW, JMO, KWIM, and L8R G8R? These make great trivia questions when you're relaxing on a cruise ship.
I think I'll stick with e-mail. I'd rather type out sentences, capitalize, and use proper grammar. I admit: I used to type all my e-mails in small letters. No CAPS. Then, I stopped that habit several years ago when I decided that I needed to grow up.
