Isn’t it nice sometimes to let loose things and write just a fun post??? Of course it is. Today I am in no mood to write any heavy/thoughtful/emotional fiction. I just decided to do a fun conversation post. I am also linking this to the ABC Wednesday for this week.

Where is the date tonight?

‘R we going 2 #TheLeelaPalace or #Sheraton or #SomeRandomEatingJoint for da #DateNight ?’

‘Hav not decided, will tell you later’

‘You gotta tell me in advance #ITakeTimeToGetReady…’

‘Will tell you by evening’

‘Evening??? #TooLate I need to decide what I’ll wear.. it’s a #GirlThing.. understand..’

‘Wear wt ever u want, how does it matter where we are going?’

‘Hello… will I wear a #Zara in #SomeRandomEatingJoint or just wear a denim at #TheLeelaPalace??? Duh..’

Will you for once please stop using hashtag for every single word!!!

‘No… #ILoveHashTags’

Akaash was in no mood to reply to her tweets, he turned off the wifi in the phone and returned to the book he was reading. 


So my word for this week is Hashtag. Now I do not need to explain it, it’s quite the celebrity itself. Isn’t it sometimes really irritating to see a hashtag in almost every sentence, with every word. I have come across people tweeting with Hashtags which runs in the length of a sentence, almost. I also don’t understand why they use hashtags with equal enthusiasm in FB. one question for them – Are you a trendsetter??? 

Linking this post to ABC WEDNESDAY. My word for H this week is #Hashtag.
Also linking to Write Tribe Pro Blogger September as my Day 5 Post.

    just imagine… growing up, that thing called "hashtag" meant absolutely nothing to us. There was nowhere to use it in a sentence, no grammatical implication in school or anything of the sort.
    Today, when I wish people Happy Onam, its #Happy #Onam, everyone #Kerala #festival #Mahabali.
    Sigh… I'm as much a part of the problem, I fear!

    Until few years, I used hastag only for coding purpose… now it's all over. One symbol is enough to gain popularity

    People think that it makes their writing more impressive I have never used it.

    Still looks like the pound sign to me, but that's generational thing.

    Funny post! Yes, it was practically non-existent a few years back. In fact I had to google the implication of using a hashtag when I was new to twitter.

    Cool post. Some people do actually overdo it.
    #$@$$@#$## I liked it better when it meant abuse and swear words.
