A: So what’s new with you?
(I think for a minute and look around. Looking for something “new.”)
Me: Nothing. What’s new with you?
Me: Oh. Why did you write that stuff on V’s wall on Facebook?
(I’m friends with my daughter on Facebook.)
A: Because she liked for a letter.
Me: What letter?
A: A letter on Facebook.
Me: What? What letter? I don’t understand. What’s the “like for a letter?”
A: It’s what teens are doing on Facebook. You have to like for a letter.
Me: Huh? I don’t get it. What letter?
(I’m thinking WTF? What is this alphabet nonsense?)
A: It’s like, you have to like… “like” it.
(At this point, I’m so confused all I can do is just stare blankly. My brain is processing nothing.)
A: Ugh. Give me your Kindle!
Me: Wait. Don’t write anything dumb on my wall.
(My daughter rolls her eyes and then logs into her Facebook page on my Kindle Fire.)
A: If someone like “likes” your post, then you like write a letter.
Me: A letter? Just show me how you would do it if you were going to do it.
A: You type in “‘Like’ for a letter” or “‘Like’ for a post” on your wall and then if they “like” it, you write something on their wall. Like this.
Me: OHHHHH. I get it.
(I guess I get it.)
