This blog is actually about two things:
- “Initialisms” (a.k.a. Internet acronyms)

My all time favorite, however, is “WTF?” I love to swear! I know you’re shocked. I can’t bear to type the F-Bomb in blogs most of the time, but I’m thinking it I tell ya, so I use WTF. It is the perfect expression when someone just does something so inappropriate or just beyond comprehension. It is my way of cussing without cussing.
