Americans have a way of talking using the first letters of words in a phrase which only they can understand.  Abbreviations !    I have to Google OMG, BTW etc.  to find out what the heck they are on about.

Oh My Google.  My cats are at it now !!








( Licking my lips ! )





( Rolling on the bed, laughing my tail off  ! )


( Immobile on the floor, laughing my glaze off ! )




( Sitting on the bed, licking my tail off ! )



( Oh my kittens ! )



( Rolling on the bed, laughing my tail off  ! )


(Propping up Daddy’s door, laughing excitedly ! )





( I want to disappear where the sun does not shine )





( Pushing on our door, laughing endlessly ! )



What is your pet’s favourite joke ?

No abbreviations please.  You will.  I know.  I asked for this !

  1. Okay, the cats are cute but as an American I must say that many of us do use full words. Except in our places of business where I worked as a WFPS (Workfirst Program Specialist) for DSHS (Department of Social and Health Services) for the SOW (State of Washington….okay I made this one up). I administered programs like AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children) which during my tenure became TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families….heavy on the temporary). Having now been retired for two years I have no desire to go back to the world of everything being written in code.
    Did you note that there was not a contraction even in my entire message?
    I think I’m just afraid that at my age I would make a mistake and use letters that were offensive….like the ones that to me would mean “follow up” but to someone else would have a totally different meaning.
    So you may be assured that although you may occasionally need a dictionary because I use big words you will never have to figure out WIM (what I mean).;-)

    • Wow ! No wonder you are happily retired after all that Michelle. Thanks for explaining, or my eyes would have glazed over and I would have lost the will to live.
      I do have a dictionary (UK/English) so that would be no help. Oh well, at least we sort of understand each other. 😀

      • I wish I had known about those “roots” when I was there in 1985. My husband passed away in 1990 doing what he loved (flying his airplane)…I’ve been a widow since then and obviously living my life.
        Since I’ve been researching my ancestors it is amazing who I’m related to. I must be distantly related to the current Royals but I’m not expecting tea at Buck House anytime soon.;-)

      • Ralph, I really just got started with a little over a year ago and I’m having a fabulous time. My mother was from Pennsylvania and my father from Arkansas and were married and had children (and raised them) in California so I never got family stories growing up. A year ago for my birthday I got myself the DNA test because I kept coming up with Italian ancestors that I’d never heard of…pretty far back but still. Anyway, I’m a real combination 47% Great Britain, 16% Irish (a few warrior princesses in my background) and…10%Italian.(including Charles I and Charles II, kings of Naples which at the time was the entire southern half of the boot of Italy)…then it goes on to 5% French/German….and lesser amounts for the Iberian Peninsula, Scandinavia and Russia and even found some in Turkey…which at the time was the Byzantine Empire. I really never expected the amount of royalty (my Italian class is calling me La Princepessa) but that is the reason why I’ve been able to trace people back to Roman senators in …320 AD.
        Yes, I’m having a great time.

      • Well, at least part of it. I don’t have anyone in Asia or the Southern Hemisphere….but all of Europe seems to be my oyster. My first ancestor in the US came over from England to Boston, MA in 1635…not very long after the first colonies here were established and his decedents kept wonderful records.

  10. LOL. Americans didn’t always abbreviate everything that way. It’s a modern technology thing. Less letters to text and some social media has limited characters allowed. Probably started with the cell phone generation that grew up texting under the desk at school with the old flip phones that had 3 letters per number – and those kids could text away without looking.

    What else, I would say… 😀

    I have heard this about which pet have to be the best.

    Dogs adore us so we cann’t honor the worship.
    Cats disdains us so we can never achieve recognition.
    Pigs regard us as an equal, so they must be the best pet… 😀

  19. Hi Ralph, I love your blog and this post was hilarious! Before I started blogging I had no idea there were people like me all over the world– growing up there weren’t too many people that got my humor. By day, I am undercover as a Human Resources professional. By night, I document stories about ChocoBandido and the shameless band of neighborhood cats under the control of a cat who refuses to move out of my house– Mr. Fluffles. I can’t wait to read more of your posts. Now on the abbreviations– I was a late adopter of texting. I too googled the abbreviations for awhile. Then I started making up my own and assigning my own meaning to the one’s I didn’t know. After an epic Facebook thread with one too many SMH (they said it meant Shaking my head or something like that) my friends decided typing out the whole word was best with me 😉

    • Oh wow ! Hi Estela ⭐

      Thank you so much for visiting and putting your time out to write such a long and informative comment. Wonderful 😀

      I have not really studied your blog as yet, but will do tomorrow. Promise !

      Yes, I agree. I do hope you have still got that humorous streak in you. It took me ages to realise that humour was my talent and I am so happy to make my readers smile, even just for a couple of minutes. Many of them have a lot of problems and need so much more happiness in their lives.

      I’ve got to ask, as you say, ” By day, I am undercover as a Human Resources professional.”. Does that mean you sleep in all day ? lol 🙄

      Yes. Typing out the whole phrase works for me 😀

      I hope you are having a great weekend my new friend. Hugs. Ralph xox ❤

  21. Very, very sweet. I love it. BTW, I have to look up those pesky abbreviations too. It’s the kids these days. They have trouble composing sentences in English class as a result of their online lives. I’m a teacher and have seen a dramatic drop in grammar and basic sentence structure in recent years. It’s horrifying.(Eye roll) As if Americans don’t get enough flak for ghettoizing the English language.
