You know, I am just thinking about how many of these kids nowdays who text cannot spell their way out of a paper bag! And now we are doing it! The only one I use I have used for the past 50 years. My dear husband is my OAO - one and only!

Has it gotten down to where we are too busy to even spell out a word? Edie

your not a goof I asked it a while back myself and never use them. It takes me more time to remember than to just type in husband and sometimes.. dear is not the word that best fits in front of it.

Thanks for being one of us - thems that are few and far between. I have an NRC, FLH and am GTB ASN - In other words, I have a nasty rotten cold, feel like hell, and am going to bed any second now! Have a great day. GO VIKES!!!!!!! Edie

I have been wondering about these acronyms. Was a navy wife for a career and it was their way to give the abrevs. and now the texting gangs, oh gosh they even put it on the crawl on the news screen. I feel like I'm in another country sometimes. So thanks for posting the site. Maybe I can keep up better, now. Blessings Ruth

Your comment made me laugh, as "Dear" also might not go in front of mine. I too was wondering if there was somewhere to go to get the list of DH, etc. Thanks for doing it for me.

Yep, the "D" can have other meanings depending on the day! :lol:

Love these!

Since I am recently divorced I can relate to anything except Dear Husband. I do have a Dear Daughter but think Dingy Daughter works very well too.

************************************************
Yes, that's where it is now. I wasn't happy with it either until my gdtr (granddaughter ???) taught me to text on my cellphone & now I want to use whatever shortcut I can find. LOL.
I love your OAO.

How about ABC - that is used when I make minute steaks or cube steaks - ABC - already been chewed! Or NCM - non compos mentis - Latin for Not Totally With it!!!! You know, a sandwich shy at a picnic, one fry short of a Kid's Meal, etc.

Have a good day. At least I think us older ones have better initials to our shortening of words. At least you have to think a little bit in the process - Oh, Gum is also ABC! Edie

I always thought LOL was lots of love but it's usually lots of laughs!

Pat G 03-16-2010 07:22 AM

I thought it meant "laugh out loud".

It's interchangable, laugh out lot loud or lots of laughs, either one works.

Geez, and I thought it was Laughin' Out Loud....
I'm in agreement with Edie...words are less likely to be misunderstood.

I just go with the flow. It meets my 20 year rule = if it won't matter in 20 years = it don't matter.

That is so funny. As I get older, that time limit gets shorter & shorter. Sometimes it's almost immediate. Ha.
After losing my daughter 6 yrs. ago & then husband recently, I decided there is really very little that's very important. Too bad we don't learn that earlier in life. Would save ourselves a lot of grief & working so hard. My priorities now are my 2 sons & g-kids. Next comes my quilting which has been my therapy.

2wheelwoman 03-16-2010 07:52 PM

Loved the list. Guess I learned I'm having a HSY (haven't started yet) moment. Or is that hissy? I was pondering my list of "wanna do" projects and it's overwhelming.

And, I had SEX today! Hurrah! Fabric on sale at Joanns for making a lot of backs. What were YOU thinking???

LOL LOL!! Can't help but giggle, and feed the PIGs.

it also stands for "little old lady" - which goes through my head everytime I see it at the end of a note , I always wonder how old someone really is that they are proud enough to advertise that they are a lol.

Gael 09-10-2010 01:10 PM

LOL is Laughing Out Loud, at least for texting among most young people, I think (I'm not 100% sure because I'm no longer young myself).
