I got a text message (via M’s phone) in Hebrew today. I’m sure it happens in Israel a lot, but here in hipster-ville East Atlanta, not so much.
Here is the message.
Cracked me up, anyway.
I don’t allow my students to write papers using txtmsg English, because then I get words like U and 2dy, which sound in my head like what Scooby Doo said (yoo???) with an inquisitive head-tilt, and “toady,” which isn’t what anyone means. And not allowing this improves (ideally) proofreading and self-editing skills.
Still, mzl tv was funny. And it wasn’t from a student.
