Proper speech

A recent conversation with my mother regarding the use of [sic] following quoted material that uses less than perfect form has piqued my awareness of all the venues ripe for [sic]-ified language.  A Facebook correspondence initiated our musings, but a text-conversation I just had with my daughter was pure gold, and I had to reproduce it here:

me:  What up?!
Sam:  Im at din din wit mahh homiee gees dawg
me:  Where at g?
Sam:  We be eatin some food fo shizzle out at da patio.  After we go to der place to get mah shiz and den i be comin home.
me: Coo wit dat.  Peace out.
Sam:  Coo c u soon homie.  Peace out girl scout.
me:  The correspondence transmitted by the cellular device has been received by the matriarchal figure and approved thereof…yo
Sam:  haha ur a freak

Who says communicating with your teenager has to be labored or discordant?  Get out your phone, don’t use the uppercase command and forget spelling and punctuation, and communication is a breeze.  geez dawg
