OMG, It's Technology!
If you are of an age where you remember stuff I have written about, you may also be entering the age of being technology challenged. As hard as I try, I find there are way too many things beyond me.
I struggle with “texting” and refuse to buy a phone that lets me talk … and it does the texting. But wait a minute – if I were to do that, I wouldn’t have to learn the whole new texting language. What a thought.
Do you remember the days spent in English class learning the difference between adjectives and adverbs, nouns and pronouns, and when to use a comma, question mark or period? I guess those hours studying really were a waste of time, although both my parents and teachers did not agree at all.
Who would have thought that in our old age we would need to buy a “texting dictionary”? I think I know OMG and LOL, but maybe I will check it out for sure. I actually saw these dictionaries at Western Drug and a few other places.
So come on readers, give me a nudge and maybe I will relent and study up more.
