Albert already decorated for my birthday. He said he doesnt have a sister to help him decorate. He did it nice!

One thing I like about texting is that you can nearly always tell when someone uses predictive texting and when someone spells things out. The errors are different, for one. The abbreviations, too-- in predictive texting, it takes considerably more effort to type "bcuz" than "because." If this same text were written by a person who did not use predictive texting, it would look something like the following:

Albert alredy dedorated 4 my bday. he sed he doesnt hav a sister 2 helq him decorate. he did it nice!

Of course, both versions are equally easy to read. It's six of one, half-dozen of another, really.
