I just need a moment to have some fun. Today i want to see just how viral we can be. I am kick-starting this thread in Gloucestershire, England, and in Ashland, Oregon. Let’s see if we can spread this around the globe, just for some light hearted relief.
A million light years ago, my ancient grandmother would tut-tut if we used the word “okay”. She said it was slang.
By the time (half a million light years ago) that I was adult, we had all slipped into the abbreviation “ok”.
Of late there is ubiquitous use of “k”. Two people have sent me texts in the last week. Both are old and cranky and beloved and total technophobes. They can barely use a mobile phone – but both sent a reply to my reach (“coming to see you next weekend, be there around noon”) with the single letter . “k”
So what is next? Well, the only thing I can see is that the next shrinkage is to l or < and the latter is much more fun. I think we should be pro-active about this. Let’s move ahead of the wave. I think we should all adopt < as the new k.
