I was chatting with a friend on Whatsapp when she wrote, Talk to you later’ and made me wonder the days when we would type right through the lingo, TTYL! Have the lingos disappeared out of our system as we grow old! Honestly, I cannot recall the lingos traded in the past! Ok! Shall try. Remember, Wru! Where are you! It’s not really a lingo but something we made ourselves and another reason to believe that we need to speak language of the young and vibrant, college crowd?
Lol! Wtf! AKA! We all loved them right in those days and emerged as our cult dictionary, making us cool and hippie. Honestly, I just googled to re-jig the memory on lingo-ism used in the past which is now forever lost in translation and stumbling on the present day. See, what I found on what they call Gen Z slang, OTP is not One Time Password for banking transactions! Think again! One True Pair! How cool! To think, DVD is the new slang in town for a threesome with two guys! Tauba! Tauba! I am actually wondering on the slang on what being naught and wild would come to!
You cannot not stop in your track to admire the slangs young generation is taking ahead, a shtick making campus conversation and dating kicking live and how! How about Yaas for Yes, AF for As Fuck, BAE for a lover or Before Anyone Else. This is one hot term that I love for no BAE in my otherwise, dullish life. LIP for being Turned Up, how about that! Seriously is one of my favorite terms when I am fuming and incensed but time is changing and it becomes Bruh. Now, WOAT is something to express Worst of All Times! The new generation is really having it all jazzy in the conversational lingo and at times, feel to missing out in the present day campus life.
Dank is an eye-opener and sounds so much like the German word for Thank you but another way for slaying it with Really Cool! Ask me about the connection and I really don’t know but feels good to hear how the lingos are shaping over time. JoMo! No question asked for it’s been all over social media for some time, pretty much like FOMO and TBH is all about, To be Honest. Just read about something called GOAT got nothing to do with a dude looking like one or the Goatee, below the chin but Greatest of All Time! Whoa! Am I!
