Do you remember when people actually wrote letters beginning with “Dear so and so”? It is an obsolete art form. I mean think about it! People shoot others instant messages on Face Book, send a text, or send an email.
Those messages never begin with dear. It is more like “hey!”, “hi!”, or the famous and ultimate greeting of those trying awful hard to be cool “Sup?” Not even a “What’s up?” But “Sup” with absolutely no punctuation whatsoever. Every now and then you get a “Howdy” thrown in for good measure but no one and I mean no one says “Dear” anymore. It simply isn’t done. No one wants you to be a dear one. They get right to the point and cut the shit. The niceties are gone. Even in some business letters we are greeted with “To Whom it May Concern”. I personally don’t miss the handwritten “Dear so and so” letters.
