My theme for the April A to Z Challenge is textspeak. This includes acronyms, abbreviations, and other slang that appears in text messages. Some of these you’ll know, and some you probably won’t, either because it’s not in your texticon (lexicon, texticon, see what I did there?) or because I made it up due to lack of better — or any — options.
For the first day of this challenge, I give you:
ATM, I’m trying really hard to resist the temptation to purchase the digital copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Amazon and watch it while my family sleeps. (This is a scheduled post, in case you’re thinking that my family is a bunch of lazy bums.) Since I don’t want to face Little Man’s wrath should he find out I watched it without him (nor do I want to spend the day barely being able to keep my eyes open), I guess I’ll wait and do the family movie night and pizza thing.
ATM, I’m thinking about pulling off the ultimate April Fool’s Day prank (ultimate if you’re over 30 and have kids, anyway) on Sam, which I wrote about here. I tested out the prank while Sam was out on Tuesday, and it worked fine. It made a pretty loud noise with three poppers, and I plan to put at least 20 on the toilet rim. If you don’t see a “B is for…” post, send someone to check on me.
ATM, I’d like to wish those of you participating in the A to Z Challenge the best — may the writing force be with you.
Alternative meaning: ass to mouth.
Textspeak I passed up: AMF (adios, motherfuckers) and ATAB (ain’t that a bitch).
So…what are you doing ATM besides reading this post?
