I admit to being even more informal when I text than I am here, by intentionally writing in the vernacular(New Jerseyeese) but you're right; texting, like Ebonics, has become a sub-language in it's own right ...or is that write?
In fact, just yesterday I was relating (face to face to my BF) what I was viewing in our backyard:
The silly gits downstairs AGAIN left a wooden bar-stool sitting in place in the yard, in the rain. (this after watching them throw away at least 5 other pieces of wooden dining room furniture that had met the EXACT SAME untimely demise.) ...and it'll remain there until their next party!
I looked at my BF and said, you might expect to witness one of their drunk arses, feet in the air lying amid the rubble ...again, at which time you will be totally justified in "R-O-T-F-L-Y-A-O" !
