Let's Learn Together

Let's face it, times, they are a changin'.
It's hard to keep up.

Do you find yourself thinking,
"What did she just say?"
"That makes no sense!"
"I don't get it."

It may be that you simply haven't spent
enough time studying the urban dictionary.

It's important to stay informed.
Even if it's only to know what our kids are saying about us.
I'll help you get started by showing you some of the new phrases
that have been recently added.

Text Purgatory
The time period one waits for a response to a flirtatious text.

Someone who is a shy introvert in real life,
but turns into a full-on extroverted party animal
on Internet forums and social sites.

Curb Shame
Embarrassment at waiting on the curb obediently
as other pedestrians ignore the "don't walk" signal in the absence of traffic.

When an elderly person, such as yourself,
complains incessantly about nothing.

Caller VD
When your caller ID identifies someone
with whom you definitely don't want to talk,
and you avoid answering them like the plague

The consumption of food undertaken to avoid
a dull or arduous task, irrespective of hunger levels or the time of day.

Cold Finger
Similar to cold shoulder, except a cold finger is done by
ignoring someone's text or facebook message--
usually when said person's comment is pointless or uncalled for.

Screen Saver
the blank expression that comes across a person’s face
when day dreaming.

Geriatric Bypass
The act of denying your actual age in order to give
others the impression that you are younger.

The regret you experience when you leave home hastily
without relieving yourself.

Postmodem Depression
The feeling you get when you haven't had access to the internet
(i.e. facebook and twitter) for a long time, like several minutes.

Immaculate Congestion
When traffic is backed up for miles on a highway,
crawling along -- and then suddenly everyone returns
to normal high speeds without passing an
accident, stalled car, or road construction.

To follow any type of car for any period of time
to watch the tv inside of the car.

Let's all try to use some of these in our every day conversations.

Luckily I no longer have suffer from postmodem depression while sitting in immaculate congestions on my way home since owning an iPhone. This also helps distract my peegret from hastily leaving work.

I fear that in this instance I am UN-HIP. I don't Tweet or Twitter or whatever the new thing is.

But the words they use are funny...except some of them give the impression that we may be OLD?!
Who's old? I'm 40 and proud of it!

Amy said...


Peegret is one I will have to use with my mom, "Hey Mom. Better make sure to use the bathroon so you don't peegret it."

Moviegating - how funny is that. How can someone see the screen in the other car well enough. I can't ever tell what they are even watching.

I love these! A friend recently sent me a text about 'texting for the over 40s' ...... eg: must go, LKI (laxative kicking in)

Linda said...

Too funny...I AM old because I text in full words...I had to ask my older sister what some of the texting means!!
