Closet talk

closet

Here comes the closet talk… but not the type of “talk” you’re thinking of! You won’t find a skeleton in there and dirty talk is in the hamper full of dirty underwear. Ha, ha, but seriously, it’s humdrum because I was looking through my closet and I noticed that my clothes were starting to look alike. Then, I thought, Oh no. I’m starting to look like that character in that old cartoon series.

Does anyone know what character I am referring myself to? Think way back. It is an old cartoon and she is named after cooking oil.

“Huh?” You say. Yes I know, judging from my previous photos, no comparison.

clothesI know, I’m also not lanky.

Anyway, the point is, I’m lacking variety: same length and style but in different colours and shades. I don’t know how to change it. I seem to gravitate toward the same style lately. You know what I’m talking about! Especially males who wear the same T-shirt and jeans look day in and day out. Now you get me.

Lost in Translation/Interpretation

Too many acronyms in texting that I don’t know what they mean. Why can’t they stick to obvious u (you) r (are) # 1(number one) Ma, besides teenagers have no time to teach their mothers.

Scenario

Mother, “What is Lol?”

Daughter, “Laugh out loud”

Mother, “What if they mean – lots of love, loads of laughter, lion or lamb, lots of laughs or leap of luck.”

Daughter, “No, just laugh out loud. Nothing else in text talk.”

Mother, “Are you sure?”

Daughter, now frustrated with mother, replies sternly “Just laugh out loud.”

Mother, “Okay. Lol.”

Mother still reading her texts, asks her daughter, “What is ldk?” Daughter, still frustrated with mother, walks away without answering. Mother, left in dark. I wonder what Btw means? She thinks as she continues scrolling her text messages.

Later

Daughter walks back in.  Mother asks daughter if Lmfao means, “Leave me f’n alone amiga ok?” Daughter, not interested in teaching mother, acts like she didn’t hear, leaving mother lost in translation.

Mother gets creative, or at least she thinks she did.
