My back is killing me! For the first time in months!
Not the result of over-exercise, just the mismanagement of my heavy suitcase on my way back from Norwich.
This occurence sent me back to reading my mail and blogging. In my mail, had been sitting a nice comment from a new commenter, Susie Vereker.
As I had a look at her blog, in no time I had three new words.
The first one was OTT, obviously an acronym.
I found it reading a post entitled Failing to be French, had to consult the acronym dictionary and assumed it meant Over The Top, rather than Off The Truck 😉 or Ottawa, among the first three offerings.
One cupboard here contains the remains of my Paris clothes, all quite unsuitable and OTT for Hampshire
I remembered one of the photos I took last year and thought it would be suitable to illustrate the acronym 😉
Despite not being a WAG, she’s had wonderful media coverage for her book launch – even the FT has reviewed her – and the controversy amongst her readers can only help sales.
I did get the FT, or at least I hope so 😉 (Financial Times, is it?), but WAG puzzled me! It did look like an acronym, but the Acronym Finder made me wonder if I’d have to make a WAG (Wild Ass Guess) to figure it out; the fourth entry Wives and Girlfriends (of the English Football team) didn’t seem to make sense as I took it literally and Petite Anglaise isn’t a footballer’s wife, AFAIK.
So I resorted to The Urban Dictionary, recommended by my daughter and finally chose the Wife and girlfriend explanation. Was I right?
