I am very happy that we acknowledge seniors in May. I used to think it was nice, but now, I think it is necessary. I have always loved seniors, but now I am an official member of the brigade. I have received many versions of the “Senior Texting Codes.” I cannot locate anyone claiming to be the author, so I wanted to share with you if you have not read these yet. It is my prayer that they will bring some laughter to your day. We all do need that, don’t we?

WRU:  Who are you?
WAI:  Who am I ?
ATD: At the Doctor’s.
BTW: Bring the Wheelchair.
BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth.
CBM: Covered by Medicare.
CUATSC: See You at the Senior Center.
DWI: Driving While Incontinent.
FWIW: Forgot Where I Was.
GGPBL: Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low!
IMHO: Is My Hearing-Aid on? (or the senior commercial, “Can I hear you now?”)
LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out.
LTNR:  Let the naptimes roll!
LWO: Lawrence Welk’s on.
OMMR: On My Massage Recliner.
ROFL . . . CGU: Rolling on the Floor Laughing, Can’t Get Up.
PTL: Please Talk Louder.
WAITT: Who am I Talking to?
WWNO: Walker Wheels Need Oil.

FMHA: Forgot My Hearing-Aid.

May your day be blessed by the privilege of being a blessing to others.
