How could I resist?
You know how the kids have all these, WTWFI (what's the word for it) ….when you take the first letter of each word and then make a word out those letters? YKWIM (You know what I mean.)
Anyway, so the kids have this extensive cell phone Morse code for communicating using short messages called "texting." They almost never use vowels! There's an entire language we don't know.
A friend of a friend on Facebook came up with a few "texting codes" for the more mature texter and suddenly I could not stop myself from building a LLOOO (little list of our own). Here's my contribution to the mature tech saavy among us.
Use it if you want to communicate in secret code when your kids or grandkids are around. Print out this list (in big, bold type so you can read it) and stick it somewhere safe. When you get a break, let those thumbs dance across the whatchmajig!
