Talking Texting for Seniors

I'm not a senior yet! But do I feel like it at times when it comes to texting. I know my numbers... but texting on an iphone is still quite the task for me. I don't know how Donna does it. That's why I stick to my blackberry! How about you?

I got a crack out of this thought I'd share it with you all.


Since more and more Seniors are texting and tweeting there appears to be a need for a STC (Senior Texting Code). If you qualify for Senior Discounts this is the code for you. Please pass this on to your CHILDREN and Grandchildren so they can understand your texts.

  • ATD: At The Doctor's
  • BFF: Best Friend Fainted
  • BTW: Bring The Wheelchair
  • BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth
  • CBM: Covered By Medicare
  • CGU: Can't get up
  • CUATSC: See You At The Senior Center
  • DWI: Driving While Incontinent
  • FWB: Friend With Beta Blockers
  • FWIW: Forgot Where I Was
  • FYI: Found Your Insulin
  • GGPBL: Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low!
  • GHA: Got Heartburn Again
  • HGBM: Had Good Bowel Movement
  • IMHO: Is My Hearing-Aid On?
  • LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out
  • LOL: Living On Lipitor
  • LWO: Lawrence Welk's On
  • OMMR: On My Massage Recliner
  • OMSG: Oh My! Sorry, Gas.
  • ROFL... CGU: Rolling On The Floor Laughing... And Can't Get Up
  • TTYL: Talk To You Louder
  • WAITT: Who Am I Talking To?
  • WTFA: Wet The Furniture Again
  • WTP: Where's The Prunes?
  • WWNO: Walker Wheels Need Oil
  • GGLKI: (Gotta Go, Laxative Kicking In)

That's quite funny! I don't text but I do get photo messages from my children. Melba's on the phone with our son now and just read him the list he wants me to pass it along to him. We all still trying to catch our breath from laughing our butts off!

OMG! If that ain't the truth. My wife didn't know what to think, since more of the list fits here. Figuring out how to shorten the list is the question? ha ha ha!

Maybe I should learn how to start texting the grand kiddies and let them try and figure out what I'm talking about. Won't that be a laugh.

Just for re-cap, the wife said it's not true about the list fitting her more, ha ha. She said I'm cut off the wine now so I best go hide the bottle.

If I could ever see the keys well enough to text? What would the code be for that?
