OK, I give! What do these acronyms like DD and DS mean?

January 3rd, 2008 at 02:40 pm

DH I got: Designated Hitter, er, I mean Domestic Housemate or Dear Husband.

OOPS! Now that I wrote this out, I'm going to guess Dear Daughter and Dear Son! Dang! I was only thinking Domestic Housemate, but as soon as I googled up Dear Husband for DH, it hit me! OK, I've still got a question though. Is DD(7) an age or number? Playing the odds, I'd say age.

    us guys don't understand these crazy acronyms. =)

    It took me a while too, before I gave up and asked. Big Grin

    The first letter stands for "Darling", and the second letter usually stands for a family member.

    "H" for husband, "W" for wife, "S" for a son, and "D" for a daughter".

    So, my DD would be Darling Daughter.

    When I commented that this stuff can be confusing, I've been told that they are actually quite common on the internet, and really, I should've known better. Big Grin Maybe it is a gender gap thing.

    Well, I just got an interesting result when googling DD. Smile

    I'm pretty old-fashioned and have resisted a lot of the Web jargon. The only two I couldn't resist were LOL and the :-) smiley-face emoticon. Otherwise I try to write in full, grammatically correct English.

    I'm a proofreader, so if the rules go, I'm out of a job!

    I cant speak for everyone...but I have 3 daughters and one son, 1 grandson and 2 grandaughters....so my family looks like this:

    DD1 = oldest daughter
    DD2- middle daughter
    DD3 - Youngest daughter
    DS
    GS
    GD1- oldest
    GD2 - youngest

    Their ages are not reflected in my acronyms....

    Sometimes the hub is DH and sometimes just H depending on what he's been up to.. Wink - Lately, he's 'the hub'

    So your grandkids aren't dear to you, Thrifty Ray? Smile This stuff gets complex! And why are you a woman called Ray? I'm SO CONFUSED!!

    I sort of agree with ceejay, expect that I love ALL emoticons! And I've recently noticed that I am tending toward exclamation point abuse when writing on the web.
