Conversations with a 20-something

The following gchat is real and has only been edited to maintain anonymity and support the theory that we can both spell. My lovely mid-20-something coworker gave me permission to post this, so I'm not being an asshole here or anything. I think she's hysterical, and she helps to keep my mind sharp by speaking in an acronym-rich young person code that I barely understand. But she explains it to me because she's cool like that. Oh, and fair warning, I'm still talking about my tortilla soup. Without further ado:
