Here's the email I just sent to Kevin. I tried to make sure it was written in such a way as to be understandable by one of his younger generation. It's just the sort of thing he likes. I should also add that the screen touch-keys on my phone are tiny and sensitive, my fingers are not tiny and sensitive, and I didn't bother to correct mistakes.
"Hey k i lost my old phone n now i need your phone number man can yoi plz ail it to me? How i like my mad textin skillz? Luv i bro.
