Phat and phunky

u never no what 2 expect. With the evolution of technology comes the destruction of language, and taking the greatest hit is spelling. I am one of the wacky ones who loved spelling, loved vocabulary, and clearly loved writing. But for those of you math wizzards or business people who never much cared for language, texting must be a dream. For me, though, it’s not easy. It’s harder for me to text l8r than to type those two extra letters.

Now phat has been around for a while, and it’s wrong on two levels – it sounds like corpulent but it means good looking. But phunky’s my new word. The meaning’s the same, but if we’re going to be different, why not change the spelling! In fact, I insist! It looks better that way, don’t you think?

Times change, lives change, so why not let language change, too? gtg. c u l8r.
