Say what? (textually speaking 2012)

He doesn't call me. That would be too easy, wouldn't it?

I was doing my usual online activities (photos, Facebook, instant messaging, texting with my kids- because I'm that mom, so cool that my kids text me) when I got the familiar "Ohhh myyyy!" text alert.

That's right. The Disabled Guy's text alert is George Takei saying: "Ohhh myyyy!". It cost a few bucks on some site, but it benefited a theater thing Mr. Takei was involved in, so it was a win-win for everybody.

The text said: "Can you give me that list of orgasms? My mom needs to know."

I speak "stroke speak".

I speak typo.

I speak autocorrect.

And it still made me laugh.

I replied, "Say what?"

He replied: "The orgasms list. I think its on the fridge."

I knew he was talking about a NASCAR thing with a list of organizations, but it didn't stop me from pointing out the word he used. He didn't know what I was talking about, which took the steam out of my laugh-fest.

But still... I don't keep a list of orgasms and I damn sure wouldn't want my mother-in-law to know if I did!

Great blog - I've done similar word warping since childhood, only w/printed words. "Panic jugs filled here" - picnic jugs filled here, on a sign seen while on vacation w/relatives. "No obscene phone calls" - no personal phone calls, on work phone at library circulation desk. Etc.
