Where and what age do kids pick up sarcastic comments? I think my nephews are the most sarcastic kids around sometimes. But, you can't help but laugh at their comments.

Last night's example:

Colin - four years old

Colin (talking to my sister) - "Prepare for Duty!" Sits for a second and starts to giggle. "He he, I just said duty."

Robin - Get ready for this with your baby Boy

Spelling & Grammar

Let's get this out of the way first off: I know that I'm not the best speller or grammar person and terrible with comma placement. I try to be diligent with using spellcheck, but, an occasional word will slip me up. However, I sometimes wonder about people my age and younger.

I received an email recently from a young family member and was appalled at her lack of spelling skills. Punctuation? Non-existent. I had to email her back and say that I couldn't understand anything written because it was all one sentence.

One of my biggest pet peeves, besides parking garages, is shortening words in emails or text messages. I hate the new world of symbols and letters meaning words. Jeez, just type the word! g2g? lmao? Ugh! To me, that means you are too lazy to type the word out. Also, don't text someone "k". You can't even put an "o" before it? Just don't respond!

I wonder sometimes if it's just laziness. Please spellcheck or read something out loud before you send it out. Loser is not the same as Looser. To and Too mean separate things.

Am I too harsh with this one?

Since Megan posted a blog about FNL, I thought that I'd post about how excited I am that Lost is back on. Most of the time I am completely confused, but, I still love that show. They kill off major characters, have a monster, time-travel, flash backwards and forwards, etc. My head hurts after each show and I am usually so baffled that I have to read online what I really watched. It's too much to comprehend! But, I am loving it!
