Dear Srsly

Dear Srsly,

You are sad and naked, stripped of all your vowels.

…Yet also jaunty, your “y” careening like an off-tilt sailor’s hat…

You are everything that is wrong and also right about this new, abbreviated society we live in, that has brought us both “lol” and “SNL Digital Shorts,” both “Wife Swap” and “Project Runway,” both blogs (cough, you know the ones I’m talking about) and blogs (and all the wonderful writing they allow to breathe in public space) .

You, Srsly, are both humorous and sad, a Charlie Chaplin figure stripped of your ability to speak out loud and yet communicating volumes.
