WRT – Wintertime Redefined Texts

ID-100298740 Make A List For Christmas by Apolonia www.freedigitalphotos.net

Now that we’re into December, I wanted to do a post that was winter/holiday themed. Since this time of year means good company and good times to me, I invited my fellow authors to join me in a little word play. Modern Family fans may remember the episode where Phil is talking about how he’s the cool dad who knows all the text shorthand, including—he says—“WTF: Why the Face?” Besides cracking me up, that line gave me the idea of taking other common text and e-mail abbreviations and turning them into phrases in keeping with wintertime. So join the fun and read on to see what these creative writers and I came up with.

  1. So much fun! Thank you, Allie.

    I was curious … were there any repeats?

    Merry, Merry!

    • Thanks for joining in the fun, DawnMarie. You came up with some good ones. There were only a couple of repeats (great minds think alike), and you’ll see multiple names following those. For some reason, we authors seem to be obsessed with batteries and booze, LOL.

  2. Lots of clever ones! Thanks for including my CRAP, Allie LOL!

  3. Lol. These are hilarious. And yes, I’m one of the many with batteries and booze on my mind 😛 Thanks for setting this up, Allie!

    • You’re welcome, Tara. Thanks for joining in. You came up with some great ones. Maybe for those leaving off the booze for a while, BRB – Books, Read, (more) Books.

    • I was LOL (laughing over liquor) as I realized nearly every abbreviation you came up with had some sort of alcohol in it! WTG (What to give?) Tara!

  4. This was awesome Allie & I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing it on twiiter so I could find it & come here! :-_

    And to all of you extremely creative writers Happy Holidays!
