Daily Prompt: 2100
The language of the future: what will it be like? Write an experimental post using some imagined vocabulary — abbreviations, slang, new terms.
Imagined vocabulary ? Like the vocabulary today, distorted by the so called SWAGGERS isn’t enough ?
I sincerely hope that through this challenge some new word doesn’t take life and get viral on the Internet, making our lives miserable.
‘SUP ? This is how some baggy-pants-hanging-down-their-asses guys and gals ask each other of their day. I mean seriously??? You can’t just say HEY or HI or How are you, how was your day,how are you doing or even just simple Whats up? would suffice.
But NO, they have to say it like : ‘SUP !
Then there is HBD . Really? I mean really?
Is it so hard to write three words ? Happy Birth Day ? Does this really take so much of your energy that you just have to retort to saying HBD ?
OH MY GOD, here comes YOLO !!!
I don’t even want to talk about the absurdity of this. This is a word which was invented for stupid people to give them a chance to DO stupid things!
They jump out of a running car, from the top of a roof, swing from the chandelier, run around the neighborhood naked or across the whole room and then fall on their bums breaking a bone or two chanting YOLO !
Uhm…NO thank you !
I’ll not take part in committing crime against the humanity by destroying the little left dignity of this beautiful language.
