I’m so old that my grown children had to actually explain texting to me when I got my new cellphone. As a longtime writer, my keyboard speed is impressive, but as a texter, I’m dismally slow with my thumbs. For any of you Boomers who share this challenge, here are a few shortcuts to help boost your texting speed:
NSR = Need some roughage
TXT L8R = Can’t find reading glasses
WWIS = What was I saying?
M = Margaritaville
WSWS = Wearing socks with sandals
GOTMG = Going out to mulch garden
NPR = Sleep aid; no prescription required
]CVG[ = Stuck in Conversational Vise-Grip
Brrr = Wearing socks to bed

I’m not sure this will make it through the ‘censors’ (grin) but…..
Can’t Remember S***
Yep, it made it through…. 😉
The writer didn’t mention “WTF”, which should be translated as, “Where’s the “F?”
(Alternatively, WTF has been known to mean, “Where’s the food?”
BTW, Some younger texters seem to use WTF very frequently, which must be short for “Where’s the fun?”)
“Where’s the fun?” Yeah, that’s it . . . Must be what those young texters are saying.
