My 20 year old grandson who lives with me is always telling me, "I don't know what you are talking about, Gramma."
And it is no wonder. Back when I went to school (that would be the dark ages), English was a pretty straight-forward language. How things have changed! I'd like to share three new words that were officially added to the dictionary--bff, omg, lol.
I made ATC's to celebrate these words. (For those unfamiliar with the genre, Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches, made in any medium. They can be traded, never sold. They offer the artist a chance to present a snapshot of an idea.) I covered the card base with duct tape (the pretty snazzy updated kind), attached foam letters, and rub-ons. Then finished it off with a touch of stickles glitter around the edges. Very modern as suits the new words.
Speaking of modern, without the modern Urban dictionary, I have no idea what my grandson is talking about. How times have changed, or am I just getting old?
