ITA -- Acronyms Rock

Who here talks in acronyms??  Me!  Me!

Sometimes it's cryptic, sometimes it's just easier, KWIM?

Let's play a comments game.  I will pick a comment that has all the right answers and send them a gift card to someplace yummy.  Or maybe you'll get the Chili's gift card I got from Christmas.  If I haven't used it by next week, that's probably what I'm sending. 

I am going to list acronyms I use frequently on facebook, blogs, texts & e-mails.

You translate them, then add your own favorite acronym (with translation).

If you want to play, leave your answer on the blog.  Comments on Facebook or my personal e-mail don't count.

Here are my 10 most frequently used acronyms:

1. LOL
2. OMG
6. ITA
8. WTF
9. BFD

I'll pick a winner next week.

Have fun!

    I love acronymns and use them mostly in emails and texts. Even my lovely DH uses BAER now thanks to us. LOL!!!

  4. I think Kathryn got them all -- yay!

    I don't use acronyms because I am too lazy to figure out the initials and say them in the right order. or maybe "lazy" is my code word for "not smart enough." I use jk all time time...but not online. I actually say it. Out loud. I know. It's a terrible habit. Picked it up from a friend in college and regret it every day. I also say "brb" but in the totally ironic, humorous sense. Or at least that's what I tell myself.


I LOVE to read comments. Seriously. I check them every day. Insecure? Maybe.
