Lately the universe is conspiring to give me a shove over some invisible line….into a demographic group where I don’t belong. Nothing against the rest of you….. but I never signed up for this…….
Boomer? Technically. Senior? No thanks. Especially when the label is attached to a piece describing how we’re dinosaurs in this fast- paced digital age.
We’ve taken over Facebook. Figured out how to upload digital photos and Twitter. Like most parents, I was forced to eager to learn how to text. It was the only way to get my kids to communicate with me.
So I admit at first our age group was a little behind—especially on the shorthand. That’s changed as fast as everything else. We’re now way beyond LOL. Someone just sent me (digitally of course)—a few examples– and I added a few of my own:
LOL: Living on Lipitor
ROFLCGU: Rolling On The Floor Laughing… Can’t Get Up
TTYL: Talk To You Louder
GHA: Got heartburn again
PIMP: Peed in my pants
WAITT: Who Am I Talking To?
FWIW: Forgot Where I was
WTF: Where’s the food?
WTK: Where’s the keys?
CRTWG: Can’t Read This without Glasses
YAST: You Already Said That
IAST: I already said that?
GOS: Getting old sucks
Feel free to add any of your own. Meanwhile I’m going to annoy text my kids again.
