It’s often said that we live in an era that prizes speed and brevity above all else. There’s long been fast food, but now there’s fast fashion, too. Why take the time to phone someone when an email will take less of your time? Why send an email when a text message would be quicker?
For that matter, why take the time to type the words “I know, right?” or “Just kidding” when you can just type “IKR?” and “JK”?
