One of my favorite things about Twitter is following the feeds of the Portland Trailblazers: Nicholas Batum, Rudy Fernandez, LaMarcus Aldridge, Marcus Camby, Wesley Matthews, and my personal favorite, the scrappy Aussie point guard Patty Mills.
Mills’ tweets are particularly exuberant and endearing, filled with phrases and terms that are JUST BEGGING to be turned into a special Patty Mills edition of conversation hearts:
If I ever update this, I might add a few more (the last two are courtesy of my season-ticket holding coworker):
- G’day bala
- Tweet me — like the old “call me,” which became “fax me” (WTF? Has there been a suitor in the history of the facsimile-using world that has ever FAXED someone out on a date? I doubt it.) and then later “email me.”
- Howzit bala
- Australia is for balas
That is all. G’day balas!
