Monday Listicles: 10 Acronyms I Use

Well, its Monday again and time for Monday Listicles.  Had a busy weekend buying the kids new shoes and having a mini-shopping spree at Toys R Us.  The boys had problems getting the swing set together, so it is only partially built (okay, there is like two boards stuck together and some smaller things put together).  Had a wonderful lunch with Nana and the Twins at the Rusty Bucket.  But, now its back to work… but, not before I make my list and check it twice!

I did remember what an acronym was… its a word formed by the first letters of other words.  See, my degrees are paying off… This week’s list was suggested by Jennifer.  Next week’s topic is 10 Things That You Love That Cost Nothing thanks to  Kristi.  Just remember… have fun!

  1. LOL – Laugh Out Loud.  Doesn’t everyone use this?  I use it ALL THE TIME.  (No comments from the peanut gallery.)
  2. MOM – Mom of Multiples.  I chose the name of my blog MOM on the Run x2, because of this acronym – but it has morphed into just Mom the normal word.
  3. LMAO – Laughing My A$$ Off.  I used this one a lot too.  (Once again, please keep your comments to yourself– and you know who I am talking to!)
  4. SOL – S#it out of luck.  My dad used to use this one a lot.  We would ask him a question and he would respond, “Guess you are SOL.”
  5. SOS – S#it on a Shingle.  My dad also used this one a lot too.  We would ask him what was for dinner and he would reply, “SOS.”  S#it on a Shingle is actually corned beef on toast, which is quite good actually.
  6. KISS – Cause I Said So.  Nana used this one the entire time we were growing up.  Until, Jeff and I realized one day that Cause doesn’t start with a K… and brought that to her attention (Yes, we were smart mouth kids) and she stopped using it.
  7. FAS – Fixed Asset Software.  I use this one at work, for example “Would you like me to enter that into FAS today?”  Just easier than calling the software by name because most people in the field don’t know what I am talking about.
  8. FIFO/LIFO – First in, first out OR Last in, first out.  Both of these are inventory methods… I don’t use them that much, but I always think its fun to say them… a little accounting humor, I guess.
  9. FYI – For Your Information.  You know, because typing out “for your information” is just SO time consuming.  I’m a busy MOM.  LMAO.
  10. OK – Okay.  I had to throw this one in.  According to the Ohio Historical Society, in 1840 during the Van Buren-Harrison contest, the town I live in was the site for a national Whig convention dinner.  Hanging nearby was a banner with the words “The People is Oll Korrect.”  This helped to perpetuate the national trend of using “OK,”  not only as a show of political support, but as a common phrase used today.  And, that my friends is your history lesson for today… here is the entire story.
