Technically, “texta” is a brand name. I did not find two texta-brand felt tip pens (one blue, one red) sitting on the kitchen table, but I did see two felt tip pens intended for drawing/coloring sitting there, and these are the things I refer to when I use the word “texta”. Because it is pronounced the same, but not a brand name, and because it looks more English, I will use the spelling “texter” to refer to these in future posts.
These two texters had been used to calculate the new price per person of the rent of the flat I share with four other people. The calculations are slightly complex because they are weighted against the floor space, which varies a bit between rooms.
