I was out reading a couple of bullitens on My Space and there was OBTW and I was unsure what in the world they were talking about. I thought it may be a new word the younger generation was coming up with. So I started to do some looking and found out it stands for Oh By The Way. I would of never gotten that. What has gotten into the kids today? When I was growing up it was Cool or check ya later. Now you see commercials on tv were the daughter is talking to her MOM and is saying I was talking to my BFF. To me I would be telling my Son or Daughters to speak in Correct english not Computer talk. This shows that I am getting old becuase I am not in to what is cool anymore. I was talking to my sister and her friends a couple of weeks ago and she called me a balla. Which to me meant I could play ball with the best of them. NO come to find out that the meaning of there word has changed and it means you are not cool. WTF? I know I am using it too but the kids today do not have a freakin clue on the english language. They are using what is called Ebonics. Which is street words or slang talk. I really am not that old so I know what words are still in but what is up with all the changing. I know every generation goes through it.I know this seems like I am complaining but I dont want to get 10 years down the line and go to the store and someone say to me WC for Welcome. Is that what the world is coming too. I really hope not cause that shows that are students are learning in english classes in school. I want to get the thoughts and feels of all of you out there.

May the force be with you.

    Sportsdork~you are such a balla~ LOL. Just kidding, I had no idea what a balla meant either, I thought it meant "cool" lol. I seen that commercial where the kids were using IM talk to their parents and I see teens using it in everyday conversations, if mine were to do that, they would get smacked.

    I'm afraid it happens to us all, getting old and the good old days. Let the kids enjoy their youth. It was us once, it's all to do with growing up and finding their identity, god help us!
