I grew up learning grammar before texting, pagers and cell phones. I have NO CLUE how to depict it in a story. Here's how I have been doing it.
I texted Emily, "Parents arrived safely. At Airport now. Meet us for lunch at our favourite fish and chip place in Peterborough in fifteen minutes?"
Emily replied, "Just finishing up with a client and then some paperwork. I'll be there in twenty minutes."
Is this the CORRECT and CURRENTLY ACCEPTED way to do so? I need help from those with good grammar or grammar NAZIs.
If it helps, the male texting is twenty-three and Emily is twenty-four. Thanks for the speedy comments thus far.
