Acronyms and Initialisms Definitions
« on: May 19, 2010, 10:58:51 AM »
I consider myself a fairly intelligent woman.  Now I find myself on some of the threads scratching my head at some of the acronyms and Initialisms.  I have figured out most of them but I will admit, a few of them are throwing me for a loop.  Its like texting with my teenage daughter...I got most of them down pat, but some of them I still don't have a clue. 

So please help initiate me into the world of WiseWomenUnite slang....

For example, here are some I get:  DIL - Daughter-in-law, SIL - Son-in-law, MIL - Mother-in-law, FIL - Father-in-law. GC - Grandchild, GS - Grandson, GD - Granddaughter

Ok...help on the rest!  :P

I don't know all of them either, but I do know these:

FOO = family of origin
IMHO = in my humble opinion
IMO = in my opinion
BTW = by the way
ROTFL = rolling on the floor laughing
SS = stepson
SD = stepdaughter
SM = stepmother
SF = stepfather

That's all I can think of right now.
