Conversations these days are getting so much exciting, thanks to the liberal use of slang and some ‘cool’ factor. Sometimes, I feel an illiterate because of the effort required to understand such talks on social media. There have been quite a few times when the use of words like ‘Babes,’ ‘Hottie,’ caught my attention on various platforms. I have seen many ladies use ‘Babes’ generously without even knowing the meaning of the word – well, it means we find the person hot and attractive (btw, I didn’t find any attractiveness in either lady in the discussion 😛 ). Anyway, going by the chats, it seems the use is driven by more of a ‘cool’ factor than anything else.
Add to it the craze for using shorter versions of each word (like u for you, bcoz for because) and i end up spending hours (not literally) to guess the discussion. I will refrain from doing so below, so you don’t have to spend that much time.
Here is an imaginary alternate talk between two ladies with a bit of truth reflected in it. Let’s enjoy:
Chikni: Hey babes, what’s up? Haven’t heard from you in a while.
Chameli: Nothing darling…kids are keeping me busy these days.
How many you have now?
Not many, since last time we talked I have added another couple. So we have 5 now.
Oh, baby. Sorry to hear that. Love you lots! Hugs ( ❤ )
Me too! Yeah…it is just that I have to carry the new ones in my lap every time.
And what about your Macho hubby…doesn’t he help?
He can’t feed, you know. Gosh, God is so cruel! Otherwise, he is such a cutie pie.
Aw, I wish I got to date one like him.
Chikni: Btw, your figure must have gone for a toss.
Chameli: Nah, Sweetie! I am still 36-24-36…but I gotta workout more.
Hottie! I am so jealous…I wish i had those curves.
Find a BF, Honey…rest he will do 😉 Btw, you wanna swing by sometime?
Sure, how ‘bout I give you a call tomorrow?
Ya, np…will be waiting. Kids will be in school all day.
And your hubby?
Ok, see ya soon then. Gotta go, tty later.
Love you, sweetie! xoxo 🙂
Chameli gets on with her Victoria Secret shopping.
God bless them, and me too!
