Slanging the 60 Blog

The best part of getting older is gonna be intentionally misusing slang around teenagers to watch them squirm.

I’ve been receiving emails from a vendor over the last couple of days with the phrase Kyp.  I wasn’t sure what that meant, so I finally googled it.  It means keep you posted and I probably would type it in all capital letters, but whatever.

I thought I knew most of today’s slang.  You know, what the kids are saying nowadays.  Like FOMO (fear of missing out), FML (f**k my life), IDK (I don’t know), TM (text message), and XO (hugs and kisses).  But there are some new ones we all must add to our vocabulary:

  • Q (smoking)
  • WUSS (wimp, coward)
  • PPU (please pick up)
  • ICWUDT (I see what you did there)
  • IKWUM (I know what you mean)
  • TYFYT (thank you for your time)
  • IYKWIM (if you know what I mean)
  • HTHFYS (hope to hear from you soon)
  • WYM (watch your mouth; what you mean?)
  • DNO (don’t know)
  • FTJ (fuel the jet)
  • DFTD (done for the day)
  • WERK (expression of approval, praise)
  • AFAP (as far as possible)
  • WDYWTTA (what do you want to talk about?)
  • GEG (interrupt a conversation)
  • GFU (good for you)
  • BROWN BREAD (dead)
  • BFTP (blast from the past)
  • 50 (police, from Hawaii Five-O)
  • 881 (bye bye, based on Chinese pronunciation)
  • AFP (away from phone)
  • AFRL (away from real life)
  • DED (dead from joy, hilarity)
  • FTBOMH (from the bottom of my heart)
  • GFETE (grinning from ear to ear)
  • HFFA (hot from far away)
  • KAFM (keep away from me)
  • LFMF (learn from my fail)
  • LGFB (looks good from behind)
  • NRFB (never removed from box)
  • PHB (pointy-haired boss, from Dilbert)
  • TAFW (time away from work)
  • WDYWFM (what do you want from me?)
  • C&P (copy and paste)
  • LOLED (past tense of LOL)
  • WORDS (response to something you don’t care about)

My favorites?

  • IGHT (all right)
  • MERP (meaningless word for when you don’t know what else to say)
  • COPYPASTA (post that has been copied and pasted)

And here are some new replacement swear words which I’m sure I’ll be using in the near future:

  • SMEG (all purpose swear word)

GFAP (Go forth and prosper)!

  1. After reading these, and really not knowing any of them, I’m ROFLMAO! Remember when we all first got on the Internet? We looked around all the chat rooms (especially the game rooms), I thought I was so up with BRB, IDK, etc. Now I read all these and…well wow. I know they use them so they can keep their fingers flying while texting, but I secretly think it’s because they don’t know how to spell! They don’t know how to use cursive writing. Most don’t know how to punctuate. So Caryn, we will just KOT (Keep on Trucking) down our ROL (Road of Life) and keep TTU (trying to understand), use emojis ATT (All the Time) and watch and commit to memory everything in the upcoming EMOJI MOVIE.
