5 pre-digital initialisms that we need to bring back to texting rn

So it turns out our grandparents had more lols than we did. They might have been signing off handwritten letters *sigh* but they had their own text speak before mobiles even had flip cases.

 

1. MALAYA

'My ardent lips await your arrival' - popularised by soldiers writing home from the Second World War *swoon*

...and all we get now is 🍆 pics from our dick appointment in Lewisham.

 

2. SWALK

'Sealed with a loving kiss' - definitely stealing this one for bae

 

3. OLOLAQICI82QB4IP

'Oh hell, oh hell, a queue I see, I hate to queue before I pee' - alright mum, calm down 

 

4. TTFN

'Ta ta for now'

Cheers Cilla. So it turns out millennials aren't to blame for everything after all lol, oh and our personal favourite...

 

5. YYURYYUBICURYY4ME

'Too wise you are, too wise you be, I see you are too wise for me' - bit more creative than lol, lol

 

6. BURMA 

'Be upstairs ready my angel' - sounds a bit classier than DTF
