    I hope that in several months you won’t be asking about a bygone activity!

    I read “WTH” as “With”. I was thinking “What the heck” was he trying to say?

    kid obviously has to translate digital jargon and its emoji short cuts into adultese. Takes a lot of work. Makes me wonder what electronic high school essays look like. Hard to read ’em and grade ’em if time is taken in decoding.

    Last month my 8 year old granddaughter wrote me a postcard and it’s sitting right here next to my keyboard. I think it was probably a homework assignment. I make her and her siblings a card with a verse about once a month.

    It takes longer to write something concise. It was Blaise Pascal who apologized for writing a long letter, explaining that he hadn’t had time to write a shorter one.

    This reminds me of the “Frazz” from a while back that taught me of the esprit de l’escalier. Reading about it online, I found this quote: “I can think of hard, tough, one-line put-downs, but only after the person concerned has left the room. (NB: this affliction, esprit de l’escalier, is one of the principal reasons why people become writers.)”-Simon Barnes

    Writing gives us the chance to craft witty comebacks, yes. But in conversation, when someone has the wit to do that in real time, it can be great fun to witness. There’s a lot to be said for some good face-to-face repartée (And for heaven’s sake let’s leave the zoom stuff out of it!)

    I can relate to the writing part of this one. I’ve written a lot for fun over the past few years, and really enjoy it.

    As for the abbreviations, they come in handy in some contexts, but I generally prefer the full versions of words/phrases (sometimes).

    Interesting comic today.
