Vernacular.

Posted on: June 1, 2009

A few months ago I was sitting at a funeral for a family friend and while waiting for the memorial to begin I was eavesdropping on conversations.

Older Woman – “You know my grand-kids all text message and email me these days. I can’t understand half of what they’re saying.” 

Middle Aged Man – “You text message with them?”

Older Woman – “Well, they won’t take answer the phone when I call. What does LOL mean?”

Middle Aged Man – (with total conviction) ” That means Lots of Love”

Older Woman – “Ohhh that’s so nice!” 

I love that. I don’t even care that its wrong. Just think how often those teens probably text LOL and every time that woman is going to think they’re saying Lots of Love. Granted, most of their conversations won’t make sense and the kids will probably think their grandma is crazy, but she’ll feel loved.

Oh and for anyone who has ever been lost in a text message  vernacular I give you UrbanDictionary.com.
