My parents have this ongoing saying, “Oh dear… seniors moment” used for when they forget their phone number, forget to turn the stove off, or when they call you by your brothers, or better yet your pets name rather than your own. I find it quite amusing. I mean, aside from the natural fear of my parents getting older, I find the moments and the saying quite amusing.
The other day I was out for lunch with a girlfriend who has a niece that is a tween (meaning a pre-teen). They have a very close relationship so the tween was showing her a note that someone at school had written her. It read something like this.
Hey Girl, I just wanted you to know that you are SMEXY!
I said to her, “SMEXY? What’s that? Is that like LMAO or LOL or BTW or OMG?”. With a delightful giggle my friend replied, “I don’t know”
I suddenly felt so uncool. I suddenly felt older. I suddenly felt out of the loop. I suddenly was having something resembling a seniors moment. I have labeled it a “grown-up moment” Now, I know when you’re a tween all you want to have is grown-up moments, and to be treated like a grown-up. So all through your teenage years you fight to eliminate the word “like” from your vocabulary. Your twenties hit and you work towards having your own place rather than sharing a flat with 4 other people. You start to develop lasting friendships full of sincerity and truth,rather than judgement and competition. But you never really feel grown up… UNTIL moments like these!! Until moments when you have to look up a cool slang word on the internet.
Soooo, I did. I looked it up on the handy Samsung think box (a.k.a my phone) that conveniently lay waiting patiently to be used on the table between us. I think about how my parents must have had their “grown-up moment” when someone tapped on their little keyboard in the middle of a classy restaurant and said, “The days of the paper dictionary and encyclopedia are gone.”
So here it is… I thought i’d start at the root. Funny, it’s not at all like LOL or LMAO. haha.
