Hey there fellow grown-ups, it’s your friendly neighbourhood PixelatedDad here to help you understand the latest lingo that kids are using in their text messages. Today, we’re talking about the word or acronym “monka.”
Now, I know what you’re thinking, “What in tarnation is a monka?” Well, fear not my friends, for I have done some extensive research (aka I asked my 13-year-old nephew) and I’m here to enlighten you.
Apparently, “monka” is used to express anxiety or nervousness in a situation. So, for example, if your kid texts you “I have a big test tomorrow, monka,” it means they’re feeling a bit anxious about the upcoming exam.
But why “monka,” you ask? Well, from what I gather, it originated from a Twitch emote of a cartoonish-looking face of a monk, with wide-opened eyes and an open mouth, that is used to express a similar emotion of anxiety or nervousness.
So, there you have it folks, the latest use of “monka” in the world of kids’ text messages. Now, go forth and impress your children with your newfound knowledge. And remember, always stay hip and cool like me, PixelatedDad!
