With so much happening in the world these days, I could choose any topic to write about: Berlusconi era ends, Egypt closes Great Pyramid, Pen-State Sex scandal, World Street Protesters, Mississippi voters reject anti-abortion initiative, Veterans day, 11-11-11 day, but it’s Friday again, so I want to end the week and begin the weekend on the light note, that is why I chose to write about me, or is it I (I never know).
If you know anything about me or read some of my old posts, don’t remember which ones, then you know that I always wanted to learn another language. Well, I am happy to report that I’ve mastered it – another language, that is. Before I tell you which one is it I have to send my “thank yous” to all 12 – 21 year old’s in my life, who are responsible for teaching me. Just read this short conversation with my 12 year-old and you will understand:Me: Max, is your homework done? Max: RUKM (are you kidding me?) Me: What did you just say to me? Max: JK, BRB (just kidding, be right back) and he added you are my BIFFLE (Best Friends For Like Ever). Me: Awwww, Maxie I don’t really care about your homework anymore. (jk!)
I knew I was in trouble if I could not understand my own son, I felt like IIR (an idiot in a room), so without waiting any longer I decided to learn his – theirs (teenage) language. This is what I know so far:KK -okay, okay , IK – I know, IDK – I don’t know, IKR – I know, right, NP – no problem, YRJ – you are a jerk,
Well you get the idea……. I don’t know about you , but I am completely lost, I am still learning English after 20 years being here and now this!!!… but I am not your average mother of a teenager – I will not rest, I will not sleep until I master this “monster” language.
I’ve mention before about how much I love, love Google, just look at what I found http://www.internetslang.com/. Who is the genius, who thought of this?! This is a Gold Mine – I am now
fluent perfect in speaking the internet slang. Here are few examples of my fresh-learned language:
My only regret is – Al Gore not inventing the internet 20 years ago, when I was struggling to learn my American English.
Happy Friday everybody!!!
