    That was so good! Also for emphasis— periods separate words as in I. Am. Not. Going.

    This is my standard emoji ????
    ‘Nuff said!

    my iphone does not capitalize at the beginning of sentences anymore. first, i was annoyed then i just accepted it. who knew i was being ironic! and now it has carried over to my computer. i just can’t be bothered with proper capitalization, but grammarly will fix it. 🙂 (i ignored grammarly for this comment!)

      Nylse,
      Hahaha! You gave me a good laugh! My iPhone stopped capitalizing once when I hadn’t done their seems-like-weekly ???? software update! Here’s how to turn it back on (if you want to, Miss Ironic!) Go to Settings” from the Home screen > General > Keyboard >Turn Auto-Capitalization to on (green). If you have an iPad and use a hardware keyboard, select “Hardware Keyboard“.
      I hope that helps! Thanks for giving me a good laugh!

    This was so good. There are some abreviations I didn’t know about. Now I’m in the know! (ITN?). LOL.

      Corinne,
      Thank you very much (TYVM?!)! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I love your new abbreviation idea!
      I really think you should use it with your kids and be all like, “What? You don’t know what that means? ???? Mom will fill you in!”
      Hahaha! Have a great weekend!

    Omigosh! It remains to be seen whether I’ll be able to keep up on the ever-changing world of texting! And as a true grammar geek and former writing tutor, I don’t know if I can possibly stop using periods. Yikes!

    This was a really fun post, Suzy! I’ll be pinning it to keep as a reference. ????

    My 27-year-old said to me that another tech rule is to have nicknames of people in your phone. He chastised me for having his name in my phone – he said “no one does that”. Always use nicknames (even if you don’t have one – use “favorite son” or something like that!).

      Brenda,
      Hahaha! I love that. A few years ago when Bob wasn’t paying attention, I changed my name in his phone to “My Hot Wife.” I am all about it!
      Thank you so much for sharing that!
