“Your Dad is Pretty Dope”
Last week Dad and Julie were in Hawaii doing two big Get Motivated Seminars. (I am still trying to figure out how I got left at home!). I was very interested in how the people on Twitter were enjoying the seminar so I started following the event on Twitter by key word searching the name Zig Ziglar.
For those of you who don’t know, Twitter is a real-time micro blog where people post their comments in 140 characters or less and it instantly notifies everyone who is following them. You can check out my Twitter account at www.twitter.com/tomziglar (and my Twitter name is @tomziglar) to get a firsthand look at it.
Through my searching I found a young Hawaiian guy who was Tweeting updates from the event every 30 minutes or so; I decided to follow him. Later that night I got a direct message from him that simply said:
“Your dad is pretty dope.”
My first thought? “What in the world does that mean!?” So I Googled it. I discovered that in the online urban slang dictionary, “dope” means cool or awesome.
I have to agree, Dad is pretty dope! I bet Dad never dreamed as a young boy he would speak to thousands of people in Hawaii when he was 82 years old and be called “dope” by a twenty-something kid on a thing called Twitter. Time are charging right now. What are you doing today to prepare yourself for the opportunities these changes will bring?
