Here I am again. I just kind of leaped into this without a plan.
I am good at that.
I thought my A post should be Ankylosing Spondylitis or A.S.
That is inflammatory arthritis that affects the back as well as hips, knees, heels, etc. And also can damage heart, eyes, and lungs and fusing of back and hips can occur.
But, as I am still in denial, I am writing on another topic.
The beloved ACRONYM.
They are everywhere.
Not so much when I was younger. The military has always liked acronyms, but the general population really didn't use many.
An acronym is a group of the letters that stand for something.
We had BFE- Bumfuck Egypt which means being in the middle of nowhere.
We also had FUBAR- Fucked up beyond all recognition.
The acronym has a life of it's own these days.
Known as geek speak, text talk, or internet slang.
I admit to searching for some of these.
Some I can figure out by context.
Does FTW mean for the win here or fuck the world?
Are you playing soccer or having a bad day?
Maybe if you are Monsanto fucking the world means you are winning?
I kept seeing AF. Had to look that one up.
The band AFI means A Fire Inside, I knew that.
As fuck, really?
Does it seem to you that a lot of these have F as a bad word?
WTF is going on here?
OMG, do you think that is why all the acronyms? So people can say naughty words without saying naughty words?
I just have no words.
