EoD, LOL, LMK, TTYL, and of course, HNY…Huh?

What does IT all mean? Well, their translations are, respectively: End of Day, Laugh Out Loud, Let Me Know, Talk To You Later, Happy New Year. But, underneath the literal definition is: I’m too busy to pick up the phone and speak to you directly so I’ll casually text, IM or e-mail acronyms when I feel like it or get a chance.

Don’t take it personally, it’s a digital world and the millennials are infiltrating. Embrace the new lingo, it’s sort of fun and the meaning “I am all thumbs” can actually be a compliment. Have you ever seen the way those two appendages can fly when someone is seriously texting? Seems that “a quickie” now means grabbing a moment to send a tender endearment via text. Nonetheless, it never hurts to have a conversation face-to-face once in a while.
