— this is really happening

Finally, some answers

shorthand_dictionary.gifRemember the scene in A Christmas Story where Ralphie Parker finally receives the Little Orphan Annie secret decoder pin in the mail? … The snowy mailbox, the run up the stairs in kid glee? With me? Remember he locked himself in the bathroom (the only room in the house where a man could stake out some privacy away from little bro’ Randy). It was there where he was able to punch out the secret encrypted "message" from the Annie radio broadcast? And then the look on poor Ralph’s face when he was pounded by the lameness of the capitalist marketing message: D-o-n-t- F-o-r-g-e-t- T-o- D-r-i-n-k- Y-o-u-r- O-v-a-l-t-i-n-e ???

In the above vein, I share with you this informative graphic attached to the e-bill just sent to me from my ‘telecommunications giant of a cellphone provider,’ T-Mobile. Take special note of their glossary’s definitions. "Super happy/toothy smile," really? And, I’d been wanking my head against the wall wondering if BBL was a command to another, or a personal reference of upcoming location … Thank goodness T-Mobile has finally cleared up that it’s "[I will] be back later," and not someone telling me to "be back later." 🙂 🙂 😉 <g> ((lovingly sarcastic))
