Today, one of my 3rd grade students gave me a copy of her new book. Here's the cover:
It's an incredibly creative, funny, intelligent book, however, my moment today consisted of me scratching my head and asking myself what the heck "BFFAEAEUWD" meant. I had a pretty good idea that "BFF" meant "Best Friends Forever", but I couldn't get even close to the rest. Then I asked my co-worker who is about 8 years younger than I am.
"Oh, it has to be 'Best Friends Forever And Ever And Ever Until We Die", she rattled off instantly.
I had no idea that the standard "BFF" phrase had such an addendum! I am clearly out of touch with the younger generation. Maybe texting more is the answer...
