Proper Spelling Mode

I'm sitting here at work and then all of a sudden I get an email from my son saying "I'm done!!!" <----referring to his homework. First of all, how did he have access to email me. Then I forgot he's at the library. Then I questioned, why the hell is he online?! Shouldn't he be doing something more productive? Then again I realized he had a Native American report to do some research on. Odd as it may seem, I'm now chatting with my son via Google Chat. Funny, right? I'm only used to chatting with friends and family members over the age of 18. It's pretty cute though. At the same time, I can't use abbreviations because hello! He's in 4th grade. I don't want for him to grow up thinking that the word 'your' is spelled 'ur' OR 'please' is spelled as 'pls' OR even 'thanks' spelled as 'thx'. No common initialisms (<----thx reegsta) allowed either (like OMG or BTW). Let's not also forget about proper use of upper case/lower case letters. Anyway, I found myself backspacing alot and re-typing my IMs more appropriately and along with the correct spelling. Hmmm, maybe I should start doing this on a day to day basis from now on. I myself don't want to become a 30 year old illiterate person nor have people think that I never had a proper high school education.
me: I <3 U


  1. OMG and BTW are just abbreviations not acronyms, since an acronym is something you can pronounce like, NAFTA or something =)

  2. thanks for the clarification. i went ahead and wiki'd it to confirm. haha! let me replace acronym with initialism.
