\ TAW-pee \ , noun;
1. A foolish or thoughtless young person.
Tawpies do exist, certainly. I’ve been one at times, for sure. But it is rather obnoxious when older folks talk like every young person is a tawpie. I went searching on my computer for something I wrote about this very topic…but I think I wrote it on a napkin, and that’s harder to track down.
“Youngins and their technology, they don’t know anything for themselves, blah blah, I’m arrogant, blah,” that’s what they say. Like I said, some people are tawpies, sure. But having the internet on our phones opens a world to us that doesn’t make us thoughtless, it invokes more thought. We get curious, we look something up. We share our findings with the un-tawpies around us. We are thoughtful young persons with dreams and aspirations and…the internet.
