Every once in a while I get sent something on a social media page that is so funny, I just have to share it with a wider group than my friends. I don’t know who made up the list I am about to share, but it was not me. I am simply sharing it with all of our readers. It was titled "Seniors Texting Code:"

ATD: At the Doctor’s


BFF: Best Friend Fell


BTW: Bring The Wheelchair


FWIW: Forgot Where I Was


GGBL: Gotta Go Pacemaker Battery Low


GHA: Got Heartburn Again


IMHO: Is My Hearing-Aid On


LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out


OMMR: On My Massage Recliner


OMSG: Oh My! Sorry, Gas


ROFLACGU: Rolling On Floor Laughing and Can’t Get Up


TTYL: Talk to You Louder


I don’t know what age the writer aimed at with the word "senior" but some of those things would fit for any age group from 35 to 85, I think. I would add a few for harried mothers and others:


ATDA: At the Doctors Again (It seems like we spend a lot of time there lately)


TTTMKI:To Tired to Talk, Meds Kicking In


TWNTTMKI: To Wired Not to Talk, Meds Kicking In


AAMWO: Awake Again, Meds Wore Off


FWIPC: Forgot Where I parked (the) car


BISS: Because I Said So (most likely to be sent from a parent to a child in response to Why can’t I ....)


CBTIML: Can’t Believe this is My Life


TMAWDWWTGU: Tell Me Again, Why Did We Want to Grow Up?


TMOOD: To Make Our Own Decisions


OK, so maybe some of these won’t catch on enough to make it to social media pages or any type of texting dictionary, but I bet many of them are used on a regular basis in some form. I am not very good at the whole texting thing because I tend to try to spell everything out and by the time I have fought major battles with the auto correct, I have forgotten what I wanted to say in the first place and or who I was saying it to.
