I resisted for years.
I refused to be involved in the degradation of the written word.
Not because I’m wordy, though as a writer I guess I kind of am, as a teacher, should be, right?
No, it mattered, because to me words have power. And words are so often misunderstood in their unappreciated form, like via text. Let’s just say that texting seemed prone to misunderstanding or miscommunication amplified, to me.
Warning: A tad bit of adult language within.
