    Speaking of talking to others (people in 3-D) about the case:

    Me: LE from OCSO, when they brought the POS in for the third time, NG said.....

    Hubby: *blink blink* Way too many initials for me. Wanna start over using actual language I can understand?

    Me: What? What exactly don't you understand?

    Hubby: *blink blink - walks away shaking his head*
    --------
    Let's not forget when in a continous conversation such as in the NG hour, there is the 'ggp'
    when someone has held it long enough and 'gotta go pee'

    Do you know how long it took me to figure this one out myself? There is a street sign that reads "Bump" not far from my house and everytime I pass it I think of WS's!

    Hope it is OK to post this link here. I sometimes have to keep this site as a tab for quick reference to internet slang. I have found it most helpful. I found it in an article for parents who want to decipher their children's text and other online messages.

    I don't know if this has been posted or not, but I saw a post that contained this and had to ask what it meant.

    SODDI-Some other dude did it.

    Or in Casey's case, when the Zanny the Nanny theory is no longer working for her...

    SONDI-Some other nanny did it.

    aarrrrgggg Thank you Bobo. This is the other one that drove me nuts and I couldn't figure out what it meant. I was going to find "MiraclesHappen" today and ask! You beat me to it and I appreciate it.
    Thank you my WS family for everything you do, everyday. You are loved and appreciated.

    Thank you for the translations and resources. I'm new to forums in general and I was really amused when I kept seeing MOO. I thought it was a particular poster's way of showing disapproval when various characters dipped and dived around the truth. It took me a couple of months to see it was an acronym but now I know what it means along with IIRC. Holy Moly .. that one was a puzzle.

    This thread should be made into a Sticky so it can be kept on top and referenced often, IMO !!!

    Oh, I thought it meant "what would your mother do?" DOH!

    This one threw me for a loop:

    KWIM = Know What I Mean?

    That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 18:10
