    Cool Mastering the lingo.

    I must admit when I started reading up all about vaping that the terminolgy often bandied around was quite confusing for an oldie like me. (thank heavens for that "ecigs terms" thread)
    I even admit to casting a nervous glance over my shoulder when I was typing "the condom method" into a google search, and using words like nic & juice kind of scared the daylights out of me.

    But gradually I'm getting the hang of it, & now those words arent quite as scary anymore. So I wrote a little poem just for fun:

    The Lingo

    There’s condoms and cartos, there’s PG & VG
    This new vaping lingo?? Need someone to teach me.
    There’s comets & stardusts, tanks with atomisers
    Its all so confusing when your approaching Alzheimers.

    Just what is a “toot” and what is a “toke”??
    Its not something I did when I had a smoke.
    Would be embarrassed I’m sure if ever I’d “tooted”!
    This lingo! Fellow vapers, I need to be tutored!

    But slowly & surely its starting to sink in-
    I’m learning the lingo – I’m going For The Win!
    My family all think I have gone quite queer-o
    When I tell them I have to go order more clearos.

    The grandchildren stare & shudder & cringe
    When they see their old granny wielding a syringe.
    And the Pensioners League think I’m totally batty
    When I say I must go home & clean out my atties.

    “She’s living in the 60’s” hubby says with a nod
    When I tell my old girlfriends I’ve seen a great ‘mod’.
    Our girl-talks have changed from the ‘signs of PMS’
    To tracking & customs - shipping via EMS.

    Now I’m ‘talking the talk’ – I’m mastering the lingo
    Even spreading the word to the old gals at Bingo
    See its never too late to learn new tricks
    Now what was I up to ?– oh yes, priming my wicks!

    Stoney, Goz, Noe and 20 others like this.

    my mid 70's parents have just got an ipad and I am doing the lingo thing slowly with them.
    I have a camera monitoring utility on mine to keep an eye on the dogs. called livecams pro. it can also log into 20000 public cameras around the world, which is kinda interesting. watched them running the bulls through spanish towns.
    So i should have made sure me dad searched the app store when he wants a new app, cause he went into the browser instead and was a little shocked at the search results for livecam.
