The Fake and the PHAT

His picture was fake, but she was truly PHAT, Liking her, he messaged her to chat back ASAP. While chatting, she was shown the guy's true image: “WTH?” she texted back to her gal pal, throwing in - SMH. Acting all nice, she told the guy, “BRB.” Privately she was wearing a BEG. He believed for a short while that the girl was simply AFK. Instead that PHAT ended up completely MIA. March 25, 2021 for the Acronyms In Couplets Poetry Contest of L. Milton Hankins PHAT = Pretty hot and tempting ASAP = As soon as possible WTH = What the heck? SMH= Shaking my head BRB = Be right back BEG= Big evil grin AFK= Away from keyboard MIA = Missing in action (I tried to match syllable counts per individiual couplet pairings, with the PHAT of the last line counting as four distinct syllables)

People sometimes do post phony photos when looking for dates. When I sent a photo of one fella to a friend, she told me, "That's not a dater; that's Antonio Banderas." It was! Love the way you use all the acronyms. Milton should like this one. Best wishes in the contest! Hugs, Carolyn

Looked up OTH (off the hook), GTMA (Great minds think alike) and BFN (bye for now). But I cannot find the translation for CQTS, what is that one? It can't be Close quarters tactical sight!!!! (like I found)
