A is for Awkward #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Feelings and Emotions from A to Z in 55 Words. Today, A is for Awkward.


55 Fiction

I am the go-to guy for my Mom regarding the slangs! She can AMA!

BTW, that’s ‘Ask Me Anything’!

Yesterday, she texted, “What’s WTF?”

After an uncomfortable silence, I answered, “It’s’ Wow! That’s Fabulous’!”

Had to change the track of our conversation, so I texted, “Let’s go out for dinner!”

“WTF!!” she replied with a smiley!

Join me in enjoying blogs from fellow A to Zers… AJ LauerArlee Bird, Arpita Mudit today! Do share some blog love with them too! 🙂

    • Lser Online is a cool one! Heard it for the first time! I remember reading a friend’s father writing LOL on a Facebook status about the sad demise of his friend. His daughter immediately added a comment clarifying that he meant LOL as Lots of Love.:P

    • Hope she doesnt get into trouble 😀 True, LOL is mistaken as lots of love pretty often and Cheryl above mentioned about it being understood as Loser Online too 😛

    • Of course, this is a made up story! More than my Mom, I would be mortified, if she used this on some unsuspecting soul, in my presence 😀

  1. It’s great that your Mother can AYA….you are a thoughtful daughter to clean up the slang. Opportunity for further lessons might occur at the WTF dinner. Your Mom is already ahead of the game…she texts. Great start with your 55 Fiction…yes, I know…but it could happen!

  2. I’ve only just found out what OMG means! When I was a youngster we had simple and sweet acronyms like SWALK and naughtier ones like NORWICH! LOL!!
    By the way, I’m doing the A-Z Challenge for the first time this year and my A is up and ready! Looks like fun.

    • Glad that this made you smile and laugh, Ajay! 🙂
      LOL 😀 I am no authority on this new age slangs, I get my clarifications from my son 😀 Now dont get any ideas, 55 fiction above is not my story 😀

  3. LOL! Reminds me of my own mom. Somewhere along the way she picked up on the phrase “shoot your wad” and thought it referred to a wad of bills. As in, “I really shot my wad today at the mall.” So far no one’s had the heart to clarify it for her.

  4. Hahahahah – so funny – Can imagine your mum happily wandering around now using her new “wtf” to everyone:-) hahahah Great kick-off dear Shilpa:-)

    • Not my mom here though, but God forbid if that was the case, it would be one hilarious-super awkward moment which would result in me-being-killed if she ever gets to know the real meaning! 😀 Thanks Eli 🙂

    • Hi Eunice! Well, I am glad that my Mom is not on internet too. 😀
      PS : This is a story that I made up 😛 But yes, if she was using the word the way it was explained to her, it would result in some comical and fun situations 😀

    • Thanks Jenny. Glad that this made you smile.
      That was precisely the reason for 55 word limit. Makes it easier for me as well as for the readers 😉

  5. Hhahaha Shilpa. Only you could come up with that .. Awkward ..very awkward. You started #atozchallege with laughter.. ty 🙂

  6. An interesting 55F with a wonderful message wrapped in it! Loved it, Shilpa! 🙂
    I like your idea of doing a 55F for A-z challenge… simple, effective and impactful too 🙂

    • Thanks Rohini! Glad you enjoyed it. 55 words is easier for me and great for the readers who have to visit so many blogs too. A win-win situation 😉

  7. I am laughing out loud (that’s LOL for the new generation who have forgotten how to talk long-hand).

    My mother, who at the height of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” phase, had no idea who MJ was, probably would not have picked up on this . I once made the mistake of explaining to her exactly what SNAFU meant, at a champagne brunch on Mother’s Day, no less. Yeah, I’m still wincing 30 years later, just thinking about that one.

    Concise and brilliant as always, Shilpa. In fact, I think my comment is longer than your post! *LOL*

    • LOL 😀 We are so used to typing LOL that one day we might even say LOL in our conversations than actually laughing out loud!
      I am still laughing and imagining the scene with your Mom 😀
      Thanks a lot, LuAnn. Love you and yes, your comment is indeed longer than my post 😀

    • I agree with you, writing words is way better than these slangs. There’s less room for misinterpretation and everyone is on the same page. 🙂
