Could hardly believe my ears when I heard it last night … OMG, FYI and LOL are now in the Oxford Dictionary! Gerry and I literally LOL:ed when we heard it. We’ve been saying LOL, jokingly, sometimes when we’re out and see something funny. I wouldn’t have imagined that they would accept this as a word, but now it’s there. I don’t think most of us speak like text messages or tweets. Or do we?
I don’t do texting at all, but that’s just because I don’t have anyone to text with. Besides, my subscription only came with so many text messages a month, so I would probably feel a little limited, even if I knew a whole bunch of people. With all the apps … Twitter, Facebook, email and so on, already on the phone, I don’t feel that I’m missing anything.
It’s still a very brown Spring, but with a little warmth that will soon change and we’ll see little flowers and other birds.
We went to see an old lady in a nursing home yesterday. We go there every now and then and it never fails to bring me down. This time, I tried to walk quickly through to the elevator, and not look so much, but just the universal smell of nursing home brings out a feeling of … I don’t know … depression?! Or perhaps, rather scare! I’m scared out of my wits to end up like that.
Now that I’ve reach an age where I’m beginning to feel that my future is somewhat finite, it’s inevitable not to think about this every now and then. Especially during those visits, like yesterday.
The conversations get more confused each time we go there, but she’s 98 so that’s just what could be expected. She’s still quite amazing!
FYI, the sun is shining, it’s a crisp morning, and I hope you all will get lots of LOL today.
