Selection by Language
Text messaging, as we know, has effectively bastardized both the English and Filipino languages.  As I was driving earlier, it occurred to me that none of my favorite friends have succumbed to this phenomenon.  All of us seem to have an inherent love for written and spoken words.  Most of us text in complete sentences with words spelled correctly, regardless of the urgency. I looked at my saved messages.  Not one contained "w8" or "d2 na me".  Heaven forbid that I ever see one.  I guess this is a case of natural selection by language.
