For new readers and for longtime readers who don’t always read every single thing written on this site — what? I know! — it occurred to me recently that it might be helpful to have a DW glossary of terms with all the words and phrases we use a lot, either for shorthand or insider-y jokes, that people can easily and quickly reference. So, last week I posted a call in the forums for a list of words, posted below. In the comments, please feel free to add to this list and/or write a quick definition or explanation for a term(s). If you’re compelled (and have time on your hands), you can even include a link to the relevant post or thread.
I’ll use this thread and your comments to create the Official DW Glossary. Thanks for your help!
Glossary Terms (so far):
DW: Dear Wendy
MOA: Move on already
LW: Letter Writer
OP: Original Poster
Ramona (as in, “I miss Ramona.” or “What would Ramona do?”)
WWS and W_S
Spring in your hot pocket
Plus: Nicknames of prolific commenters
