The other day I was talking to someone and he referenced the term MILF. I had no idea what he was talking about. He had to explain what MILF is–and if you don’t know either I really don’t want to be the one to tell you. It’s gross. Let’s just say it’s text shorthand for someone’s mother that you find very attractive and you’d like to…take out to dinner. At least.
I was just texting today with this same friend and he’s been on the road for a long week of work. I wrote TGIF and then wanted to add how happy I was that this whole obnoxious week for him has come to a screeching halt and he braved it. As I knew he could. So I added TGTO–which I just made up. It means “thank God that’s over.”
He texted me right back and said I had a texting hit on my hands–that I should get it out there to the masses so we can all TGTO. So here I am with a new term to trend on Twitter and on phones from here to everywhere. Go ahead and ask your 486 friends: How many things are you TGTO today?
Personally I can name about 20, starting with the laundry, the exercise in the blazing heat and the stepping in throw-up (I am NOT kidding you) as I was talking my walk. I know, talk about MILF being disgusting…how’d you like SITU? (stepped in throw-up.)
So–here’s to TGTO, yours, mine and ours. I wish things like breast cancer could be on the TGTO list, but we’ve got a long way to go on that one. For now I say just enjoy getting through whatever you’ve gotten through this Friday and give yourself a high-five. It’s over. You did it.
As I knew you could.
