Reaching out

Should I describe having telephoned someone I tend to say, “I called you.” And when I email or dust off my quill and inkpot to send a handwritten note, I would say, “I wrote you.” Same thing goes for even an abbreviated text.

But for some reason, it’s now referred to as ‘reaching out.’’

Someone once told me that when you see something that shocks you, and then your opinion is requested, simply state the obvious and no one will be offended.
