WPT on NPR: Solid
I was interviewed on NPR’s Tell Me More today. Click here to listen to the whole interview.
KAELIN: Well, I see it more of from the children’s perspective trying to understand the new acronyms and the new abbreviations that the parents come up with. So there is an entire section in our book, a glossary of terms and emoticons that parents have actually created. Good Golly Miss Molly has now been shortened. Or there’s a emoticon called Bowtie Man, which is a reminder from a mom to never do anything stupid. Things like that.
COX: So we’re getting a new language.
TUCKER: Yeah. I want her to add one to that. Add solid, because I say that the kids all the, you know, they say something to me, you know, ma, I’ll be home at 12, whatever. I say solid. Because that’s something that we said in the ’70s.I can’t help it. And they go, what? Solid? Who is solid, you know? So I taught my kids solid through texting.
KAELIN: I want your kids to submit to the site. That’s perfect.
