It’s complicated.

Will you?

Will I?

Yes, wouldn’t you..?

Wouldn’t I?

What I mean to say is….Will you? Please ……

What are you doing?

Erm…… Doing?

Yes… Down there. I tower over you enough when you aren’t half bent and crooked…

Half bent? What is that supposed to mean?

Half bent! You have that look… that thing those people -how do you say it?- Oh, I don’t know airy and breezy…

Is this a joke? Are you really enjoying this?

I would ask you the same question. Last time I checked you were not the person I see before me…

And what person is that? 

Not this – it’s so ………….so ………… unnatural. For you, I mean.

Well, I know I’ve never been conservative but unnatural?

Rather liberal I would say. 

Ma Cherie, Will you? 

Will, I what? 

Will you come down to my level of thinking?

Are you sure you are not possessed?

I think you have confused me with some character. I’m not quite sure what it is you imply…

Look!  I will come down to your level and tarnish my finery, on one condition…

Anything. of course!

Ask me the question again?

The..  Which one?

Oh the heavens, this will never wash out -the first one!

Oh, of course. Will you?

I will…

You will – this is just marvellous!


If what? I beseech thee.

If I say I will: will you promise to remain the Gayest fiance there was ever born?

Gayest? Have you lost you….. I am a full-blooded Alpha. Is this a joke?


No. Just No.

If I say I will -will you continue to be the Gayest man I have ever seen?

Well, my love. Don’t mind if I get up off my knees- I need to think about this.

I said yes, I  will!

You are mocking me.

No. I love to see the way you look at me – T’is the gayest I have seen you yet.

Dear Lord! 

Will you? , it is just Darling.

I think, ma Cherie. I think I need to, uh, communicate a little better..

If you say you will, you may kiss me.

If I may say….. K- cos I  b like MindFuck. gotta chillax with my bros in a mo, my answer is mb. 

MB? Another mighty bastard

(Doesn’t it suck that we use text lingo instead of proper language these days)

    My text language is basic. It amounts to sys (see you soon), omw (on my way) and where u at? The last one is readily decipherable. Btw, I only use it with my significant other, lol.

  5. Love this post, Daisy! It’ll be interesting to see how the language we use in texting and messaging influences communication over time.

  6. I had to read this twice!! It really is interesting how, text language has somehow taken over the English. I got a really good idea from reading this. I just might try and write a blog post using just text language.

    • I think that is an awesome idea. I can’t wait to read it. Thanks for supporting me πŸ™‚


      • Your welcome! I might do it, I’m not sure though, it might be a much more difficult challenge than I think it is. I love how when I read a lot of your posts they make me stop and think about things.

      • WOW! What an awesome thing to know. Thinking is good. I think challenging ourselves is a good thing. I think you should – you may just surprise yourself πŸ™‚ I have every faith you can pull it off. It may start out a something and turn into something completely different and I think that is cool too .xxxx THANKS for your support πŸ™‚

    • Okay. I was kind of prepared for this. I like to participate in a Blog I follow Friday Saturday Stream of Consciousness- if you click on her name link – Linda G. she explains the rules.

      Each Friday she gives us a prompt to write something . The prompt this Friday was to use the word mg in a post. I used mine as a way of looking at how language has changed and how easy it is to miscommunicate. So this is all about a man trying to propose but there is a lot of miscommunication going on. At the end the man who proposes says he will mb ( text speak for Maybe) think of being Gay : ie happy not Gay as in what he initially thought she meant by him coming across as Gay. I hope this clears things up if not I am glad you enjoyed the piece of writing xx
