David’s Wasteland

Hello! I’m David Sadler.

I’m not sure I am able to live up the expectations dear Rachel set in her post yesterday. Having been asleep for nearly 250 years, I’m a bit behind the times. It wasn’t so much sleeping for so long, but in sensory deprivation as punishment for not completing an assignment from my Master. Many things have changed in a quarter of a century.

One thing I am struggling with is the language.

Uber, for instance. I have heard several young people use this word. Gage, the demon assigned to watch over me to make sure I get my assignment done, says it is how the young people talk now.

I may resemble a young twenty-two-year-old guy; however, I’m over four-hundred-years-old!

Some other words that confused me were: Peeps, Emo, and Crunk.

Do you all know what these mean?

I am already at a disadvantage considering my demonic side is clawing to get out at the slightest provocation. So, please, help an old half-demon out and share with me some fun, common words or phrases. I need to fit into the twenty-first century a bit better so I may find my target and possibly vanquish this monster festering inside of me.

That’s all I really want, after all, is to be human. I didn’t ask for this enslavement.

In return for your help, I will give you a final chance to earn extra entries into Lynn’s drawing for a $25.00 gift card.

Leave a comment here for one entry, but if you go and also leave a comment at Wasteland, the story Lynn wrote about me, I’ll have her give you TWO more entries for that comment.

That would be a total of three for today if you leave a comment in both places.

Lynn told me she would tally the entries up and announce a winner tomorrow some time. You’ll have to give her some time, though. I have been watching all week and have seen many entries!

Good Luck.

    400 years old! Wow! What’s your secret to your longevity? Peeps, aren’t they the yellow marshmallow chicks you see at Easter? 🙂 I think Emo is a type of music, but don’t hold me to that. I’m not up on all the current lingo young people are using, but if you see TMG, that stands for too much information. OMG, is oh my gosh. That’s about all I can think of at 5:30 am.

    Hi, Jill. You are up early this morning.
    Longevity–Being a half-demon helps…Can’t die. Blood contract my mother signed with the devil before I was even born sealed that deal. 🙂

    Thanks for the “lingo” lesson.

    Good morning, sleepy head! Welcome to the waking world. *cringes* Don’t bite me for poor humor, ‘kay? 😉

  4. Well, David, I’d suggest you check out urbandictionary.com, but then I’m guessing you don’t have much experience using the internet :). You’ll get the language figured out, I’m sure!

  5. Intriguing character. Looking forward to getting to know you better, David. 🙂 Have a good weekend!

  6. David says:

    Lbdiamond-that’s funny.
    Kat-yes. I did roam to a slang dictionary to help. Very strange words there.
    Lori-Hi. same to you.

  7. Lorna G. Poston says:

    I agree with Jill. Peeps are those marshmallow chicks at Easter. 😀

  8. Christy H says:

    A lot of younger people I know say “my bad” when they make a mistake. I’m sure there are more but I just woke up myself and need caffeine….have you tried caffeine yet ? 🙂

  9. Missing a huge chunck of time would make the world and the way we use language pretty horrifying really.

  10. DAVID says:

    Lorna–Peeps…I did have to look up marshamallow chicks. . . NICE!
    Christy H-Caffeine. Oh yes. I find that VERY helpful in keeping awake. LOVE it.
    Cassandra–Yes. The world had changed so much–rather disorienting to tell you the truth. But you guys have helped me. I’ll fit in better…then maybe find this Jessica Hanks I’m supposed to find for Master and see if she can help me, instead!
