Toward or Towards?

Oh, no! According to David Foster Wallace, "towards" is British. It's like writing the word "colour."
But I like to say "towards." I don't even know why. Is it a regionalism? Does it have to do with having read lots of British literature?

I suspect it also might be a regionalism?

Read Wallace's explanation here.

What do you say? Do you notice if people say it the "other" way, whichever way that is?

As both a writer and a writing teacher, I have to pay attention to these details!
