Email exchange with a 13-year-old

Here is an email exchange I'm in the midst of with a former co-worker's daughter. They moved away from Michigan this past fall. I've always been like a big sister to their daughter:


Young teen:
subject line: *poke*

*maniacal laughter*


me:
:: runs away in terror ::

"eeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwww!"


Young teen:
Mwahahahahaha!!!!

*pokepoke*

lol


me:
Hey Sweetie,

How are you doing?
Are you enjoying your life in C?
Tell me about your new friends?

How does C compare to Grand Rapids? Pros and cons.

(Mr. F) and I miss you A---- clan very much. In fact, I invited your Mom and Dad to set up an A---- group at dot mac.

Love,

(Aunt) Nancy


Young teen:
ello. LIG. columbus is kewl. As is b. So are friends. XD

Erm...well i haven't seen as much of c as i have of GR (downtown i mean). We're closer to it, which is nice, and they have a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge library. 
(squee!) but i think GR has more fun stuffins going on. As for b, it's cool because you can walk everywhere, but it's not so cool because you actually do. If that makes any sense.

i think dad did, but i'm not sure. it might be dead by now cuz nobody's using it. idk.

i g2g now, ttyl

lol


me:
u r a q t, E!

Glad to know you're enjoying B ... except maybe the walking everywhere ... and the C library! :D
I need an excuse to walk more.

We just celebrated my Mom's 80th birthday. It was awesome, 'cause she slept through most of it. Precious, really. Yet, she was singing "Happy Birthday" the next morning. So she must have one eye open when no one was looking.

Peace, E.

Nancy



Communicating with the younger set is fun. And I understood everything she said! Except "XD."

It's another one of those dreaded anime smilies! It's like the :D face, only with the eyes crossed like they're closed really tight. I think!

A joke.

I see people ask what <3 means just about as often.

(it's a heart.)
