Below is the extent of our son's communication with us (by BBM), since we dropped him off. Our A/A-student seems to have picked up a multiple final letter texting disability,making him sound like a preteen Jonas Brothers fan.
Did you like your compsci seminar? Yaaa
How was the activity fair? Funn
The convocation photos look cool – Greattt
Is it still as hot as when we dropped you off? Nooo
How was brunch? Goood
Have you done the laundry? Yaaa
And…the only info he's volunteered:
I've been playing a ton of ping pong. (Finally – No immature multiple letters…But he did add a "ha ha")
My secret to getting reasonably loquacious return texts? I ask about some specific thing that I could not care less about but which I know is deeply important to them (Top Gear and allowance spring to mind first).
