NOYB - JK

Acronyms - gotta love them. It is fun to use them especially fun when your friends know you well enough to be able to figure them out like when Millie did on this post.

BYU uses them, except you don't just say the letters you sound them out like this:
SWKT = swiket and HFAC. My favorite one is of a building that doesn't even exist any more - SFLC (syphilis)
Others at BYU that you don't have to sound out (hey I just realized that BYU is an acronym - SSS):
JSB
JFSB
JKB
ASB
MLBM
DT
RB

Here are some that I occasionally use in conversation:
BFF
GP
TDF
ETA
BFE
BFD
XYZ
PDQ
Big D
TTFN
NBD
IDK
TCB
TLC (I'll settle for a scrub)
SOL
SOS

I don't usually use these in texting but I've seen it done:
BRB 
TTYL
OMG
LOL
F2F
GTG
When I went to London, I made some friends there and they called me (and still call me) KFC. If you can figure this one out, you're sick.

I am now going to tell you about myself using as many acronyms as possible:
Hi my name is KTB. I live in the WFB in PU. I like to play BB, RB, and watch TV. Some of my favorite places to eat are CR, SS, TT, and the new P712. I am working on a PHD in IP&T at BYU. I work as the ES at the MLBM. I like to coach BB at AFHS. I served a mission in the TSAM. I drive a VW. This year I talked my B&S into not exchanging gifts for Christmas and instead we are doing a SFS. My M&D (L&J) live down the hall from me in the WFB. Every second Sunday of the month I teach RS from the SWK manual - next year it will be the JS manual. I used to watch a lot of ER on Thursdays and I like 24 (do numbers count)?  If I had a BBQ, I'd ask you to BYOM. OK. I'm going to GTB and SMP cause I gotta WITM. LYG. SYS. URAQT

I can't decide if I enjoyed that blog or not. It was hilarious, don't get me wrong, but since I only understood about half of it...it makes me feel really old and out of it! I guess I better brush up on my acronyms before I let Macy have a cell phone. :)

I hate to burst your bubble (BYB) but most of those are not acronyms. Acronyms spell out a word you say like NASA. Otherwise, they're abbreviations. I think it's important you know this.

Yup anonymous you are right. I apologize for my ignorance. They are abbreviations. Thanks for educating me on this topic.

BTW - sorry for giving some of you anxiety. I realize this post was a bit annoying.

Anonymous is almost right...acronyms do spell a word say like SCUBA. But an abbreviation would be Fed. Bur. Invstgtn. An alphabetism is the expression of spoken sounds by an alphabet as in eff bee eye. So I give all my points to KT!
