I found out today that a select group of my students have adopted the use of “OMW” instead of “OMG”, just because they think it is hilarious when I get really frustrated and say things like “Oh my WORD, would you just give me 30 seconds where I am the only person talking?”
Granted, it is a sort of an old-lady phrase. But it keeps me from cursing at the children. Which could totally lose me my already-precarious-due-to-pending-budget-cuts-JUSTMAKEUPYOURMINDSSTATELEGISLATURE job.
I predict it this new acronym will sweep the nation, via text message, during regular school hours when texting is not supposed to be happening. OMW, I’m tired of taking away cell phones.
