Katie... For The Win

I was asking the kids for suggestions as to a good question to submit on Tumblr. Natecommented that the best was hands-down A/S/L.

“No! A/S/L is the lamest question!’

Katie responds with, “Wait, what’s A/S/L?”

So I explain that before FaceBook and Twitter, when you didn’t have lots of web pages to talk about yourself, that you would enter a chatroom and that was the first question, so everyone knew who they were talking to (or so they thought). She still looks confused to I offer an example.

“Mine would be 38/female/Utah.”
“OH!” she says with dawning comprehension. “That’s makes so much more sense than what I was thinking of… 28/straight/in a bar…”

Oh, lord, that girl is going to be the death of me.
