what if i wrote a whole entire paragraph, even a blog, without the use of capital letters? to think of doing it without punctuation is unthinkable. even without capitalizing, i feel like i am breaking some major-rager rules!! woooo scary. i shit you not. but, one of the shift keys on my keyboard is working like shit, i.e. hardly working at all, and i’m tired of banging on it!! yeah i know i do this shit for a living, i could replace the damn keyboard. that seems to make it even less likely. oh dear oh me oh my. i may be stuck with this fucking bum keyboard.
so i was texting with a friend and i actually left some letters uncapitalized and i know! she is like me. she gets anxiety when she does something wrong. she has to correct on the next line, any misspellings she makes. if i make a spelling error, god forbid, i will correct it immediately. but it might ruin my day to think that someone thinks i’m a bad speller. what is that?? oh boy do i miss my capitals. i am a big accentuator, i see.
so anyway! i was texting with the friend, and i had the lower-case letters, feeling acutely that i’m breaking a major, major rule, just as i am now, and i’m like, “what’s going to happen? who is going to know? what will they do if they do know?” somehow i can’t help but fear the consequences. but still, i had to do it. just try it. i promise not to continue. i don’t know if that means fixing the keyboard or doing a little pinkie weight-lifting to strengthen it or what. i’ll keep ya posted.
