Hey! Welcome to 52 weeks until I’m 50 years old! Actually it’s now 11 weeks until I’m 50! If you are new to my blog, to the right are other subjects I’ve written about. Some may resonate with you or at least give you a chuckle. If you are counting down with me…we are almost there! Crazy!!!
Remember the Wheel of Fortune? The show features a competition in which contestants solve word puzzles, similar to those used in Hangman, to win cash and prizes determined by spinning a giant carnival wheel! I love puzzles and I love vowels! Now I know why…
These days, I find myself vowel-less! In a world where Google has pages of new slang meanings and definitions, I’ve officially become “old!” I have no idea what people, mostly 13 to 30 year olds are talking about as they move around me. I’m constantly laughing at myself asking them…”What does SMEXI mean?” It’s like I’m witnessing code. And it’s true…I am. Called the “texting generation,” today’s workforce flies though the conversations they are having. And it’s all in code. I get speed dial…that’s because I’m old and can’t remember your number dude! I’m pulling myself through this new universe of language trying to wrap my arms around it. I’m exposing myself here but I recently purchased a texting dictionary of acronyms! LOL…and it’s the “Family Friendly Edition.” Wondering if that means there is a “X-version” I should know about. Go on, laugh! It’s OK. I’ve gotten over the fact that I’m no longer “with-it!” That term in itself should illustrate how uncool I really am!
Take my test of the top vowel-less words here. Are you lost like me? LMAO! SMEXI, :3, KML, GOMB, KOTL ,TIE, TYT , SMH, DWL, TBH, WITH? Here’s my new one I just created…ISL…I’m So Lost! LOL! Here are your answers: smart and sexy, cute/goofy face, Killing Myself Laughing, Get off My Back, Kiss On The Lips, Take It Easy, Take Your Time, Shaking My Head, Dying With Laughter, To Be Honest and Where In The Hell?
Yeh, that’s my MOTD (message of the day) to you! MRA (moving right along) here. MHOTY (My hats off to you) for staying with me! and…459 (I Love You) for it…Yeh…explain that one to me please!
