I'm a big believer in acronyms. I abbreviate a lot of things. I thought I'd add a list of things that I will probably, at some point, abbreviate. Having a handy list might save a few puzzled looks somewhere down the line.
"Juggling Freak" = my husband = "JF"
"The Offspring" = my lovely daughter, the fruit of m' loins = "tO"
"OzChick" = my best friend = "OzC"
"HumidityLikeABrickWall" = the coastal city I reside (and swelter) in = "HLaBW"
"SheWhoAggravates" = my Siamese Cat = "SWA"
Those are all that are coming to mind right now. I'll add more when I discover that I need them.
