Do you text? Do you text often? I must admit that I am fascinated by it. I see younger people standing in line and their thumbs are moving at lightning speed. I don't like all texting however. I am upset to see them texting while driving, at the movies, during a meeting, while in a class, in church! They carry on full conversations in a matter of seconds. My text conversations are slow and perhaps painful to read because I don't speak text. I write words, even full sentences which I know is not correct so in an effort to learn how to do it correctly I looked up the the text lingo.......
Oh My! The full list is here but here is just a small sample of what I found.
10Q = Thank you
143=I love you
2moro = tomorrow
2nite = tonight
AAK= Asleep at Keyboard
ADBB=All Done Bye Bye
BON= Believe it or not
CYL= See you later
FYA= For your Amusement
HIOOC= Help I'm out of coffee (like this one!)
Here where we live there is not a law just against texting while driving, it is instead called "Negligent Driving" and it covers anything you are doing that results in an accident or motor vehicle law violation. So putting on eye makeup, eating your bowl of cereal or texting are all covered under this law. Do you have such laws in your state?
Do they offer a course in this language? If God gives us all another thousands years, will any one understand this "Discovered Language". Does this effect how our children and grand children write in school? You out there with kids - what do you think? Oh should I type WDYT=What do you think? Well CYL.
