Ahhh… Back to School! The most wonderful time of the year…. well, for parents anyway.
Last week the The Teen stepped in to a brave new world…. HIGH SCHOOL. As if going to high school wasnt stressful enough, she also has an incredibly hard workload with mostly Honors and AP classes – all of which are scattered around the college size campus of her new school. This is her first year for Labs, first year for AP Curriculum, and first year with… LOCKERS!
Proving yet again that the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, The Teen is most excited about her new locker, and getting to decorate it up and really make it her own. Have you seen the “locker chandeliers?” Yep, we had to have one in pink. Locker mirror? But of course. Magnet photo frames – at least a dozen. But when we got to the combination locks, and I tried to show her how to use it… the look of panic set in.
“What if I forget the combination?”
I remember vividly forgetting my locker combination a few times. Putting in what I thought was right and then yanking on it a few times growling “COMEON” along with a few choice explicatives. The Teen is going to have to remember enough formulas in her classes – thankfully though she will never have to worry about remembering a locker combination – because she now has a “Text Lock” from WordLock.
You probably don’t remember your high school locker combination. Was it 12-37-20? Or was it 21-37-2? With WordLock’s new text lock, you surely won’t forget all the times you L-O-Led during drama class or how you became B-F-Fs with Jake in 11th grade. WordLock’s new spin on the right-left-right combination locks uses well-known acronyms and abbreviations that you’ll remember for a lifetime. WordLock F-T-W.
Remembering a word – especially one she uses all the time – is a zillion times easier than remembering three randomly generated numbers which have no significance to her whatsoever. Even her friends at school now want a Text Lock – because unlike The Teen, they have already had those “COMEON” moments. And Midge wants to know if I will keep it for her when she heads to high school. The Teen is going to have a lot to remember this year, but thankfully with the help of WordLock, she has one less thing to worry about.
