My great-niece Trinity, whom I have mentioned before manages to keep me current on what teenagers are up to. I must say there are times I just don’t get it. Trina is a very cool chick, I mean this is the girl who at age eight educated me on Hannah Montana – hello.
I saw a post of hers on Facebook where she did one of those surveys where you give short answers to a list of questions, then have your followers copy and paste the list and do their own answers. She answered the question about being single as “totally not.” Ok, I’ve met her boyfriend, he’s a real cutie, but there was no mention of my 15 year old niece getting married.
I’ve seen other people do this also.
In my day (does that make me sound old?) a single person was someone who was unmarried. Otherwise you were dating, going steady, had a boyfriend/girlfriend. But you were still single. I guess it goes along with sex being downgraded to just a part of getting to know someone and not an act of commitment. Once that cherry is popped it’s all over except for the cleanup.
Something else I don’t get and maybe this goes along with the LOL, wtf, c u 2 and all that. When did the sound of the letter T get changed or in most cases disappear. For example the word button. When you read it you see two T’s. BuTTon. But I hear it pronounced as buh-un. This aggravates me as much as someone saying newcewler instead of nuclear, reeluhter instead of realtor.
Anyway, that is the rant for this blogging day. FYI-I can do the Cupid Shuffle!
