I was thinking the other day how long it had been since I used the acronym “IRL” or the expanded phrase “In Real Life.” It used to be the thing we’d say when we meant “not on the internet”, and I’m glad that it has become gradually obsolete over the years, now that the internet is accepted as part of life.
