Amelia’s latest drawing, a character from CweepyPasta (a cuter version of CreepyPasta). We briefly discussed the correct spelling of “Question,” I also made sure she knows that there’s an “H” in “what”.
Amelia: “Mom, I know. That’s just how they do it on the videos.”
Me: “Ah, memespeak, or text speak.”
Amelia: “Yeah, like how you is U.”
Me: “Oh I’ve always hated that one.”
Amelia: “But why? It’s just a shorter way of writing it. Why would that make you angry?”
Me: “I guess it’s just my fear of change in the face of all that is constantly evolving. You’re right, if I can be I, there’s no reason you can’t be U.”
