As a matter of interest: texting acronyms for seniors. :-X.
I bought this little flip book, Texting Dictionary of Acronyms. I'm not into this stuff like the kids of today are. Mostly I use the LOL or LMAO with a smattering of :)) or :((. But apparently there is a whole new world of language out there that scares me. Scares me because I love the English language and all of its nuances. Here's a lovely texted nuance: EPADY. Want to guess what it stands for? Eat poop and die you. Very nuanced. I'm convinced that as our world evolves all our progeny will have on their hands are little thumbs to type on tiny keys. Since my readers are mostly, not all, but mostly a little older, this little handbook does have texting acronyms for seniors. So here goes TWS (texting while senior): Read more...
