Dear SureType/T9 Function,
In reference to the last letter I sent you, I realize that I spoke - or rather, wrote - too hastily.
Today I was responding to a friend's email, and when I tried to input the ubiquitous word "fucking," you, as always, offered alternate suggestions. In the past, I have mocked your "ducking" suggestion, dismissing it as uninformed and useless.
And, I'm sorry. Because today you made a suggestion that is so brilliant, I'd like to retract my previous complaints.
Here it is:
What a great word! When used in moments of frustration or mild anger, it takes the place of "fucking" in such an unexpected yet appropriate way. Notice:
"That dicking club kid is the worst."
"I hate my dicking job."
"That dicking girl needs to realize that the world does not revolve around her."
T9, you are a wordsmith! You are a visionary!
If I were one of those suckers who read the The Tipping Point a few years ago, I'm sure I'd call you something like a connector or a maven.
In any case, I'm sorry I doubted you.
You're the dicking best.
