In the Future

The language of the future: what will it be like? Write an experimental post using some imagined vocabulary — abbreviations, slang, new terms.

Conversation between husband and wife over lunch at a restaurant. No words are spoken instead both are furiously tapping away on their “communicators”, their faces expressionless.

He: Wake me at 630 tom. Have early meeting.

She: Sorry my alarm rings at 7. DIY (Do it Yourself)

He: Pls its IAH (important as hell)

She: Baby Z keeps waking me up. Need sleep. DIY

He: (Devil emoticon)

She: DC (Don’t care). BTW NTG (need to get) N a communicator

He: (Fed up emoticon) Hes 4 Why does he need it

She: How else should I talk to him. All the other kids have it.

He: (Fed up as hell emoticon)

She: DC. When will food come. Hungry as hell.

He: DC

Just then the food arrives. Now both husband and wife use one hand to eat and the other is still tapping on the communicator.

She: Dishes (Delicious)

He: Mines ordy (ordinary)

There is a lull in the conversation as they both respond to other video messages and mails. They are still not talking, instead the words they are typing are being converted to video.

They finish their meal and go their separate ways.

She: K (That was a nice meal thanks)

He: K (See you later, bye)
