HA! i've been scrolling through my blog post drafts because you just never know when you may have a hidden gem from 2010. And voila.
Now, I've done 30 seconds of research and found that the word "sext" was officially put into the Merriam-Websters dictionary in 2012 but that the term was first published in 2005. If I compare myself to other technology-users, then in 2005 I may have just been getting my greedy little hands on a pink razr flip phone. Never really in the know about the latest hot ticket item, maybe sexting was a thing before I wrote this blog post but I certainly didn't know about it. So consider me a prophetess, even though it may have already been happening and the term invented. I do seem to keep inventing words that have already been invented. ("nowstalgia," for example. And I was so excited about that one.)
Here it is, my time capsule blog post, dated May 2010:
I need to tend a sext.ha ha. Kind of funny. Kind of. I wonder what it would mean.
Also: I've been re-watching the show Selfie and it's soo great. I love mocking popular culture but also drawing attention to it as it threatens to become a serious problem. An epidemic. As an opportunity for a little social-psych analysis and self(ie)-reflection. Anyway, go watch it today.
