Katarina: I'm reading my new book. FYI, I read 89 pages today.
Thomas: That is great honey.
Katarina: FYIA, there are less than 200 pages, so I'm halfway through.
Thomas (thinking): FYIA? For your information...A?...
(breath catching, heart stopping, face falling)...FYI Asshole? Did she really just say that to me?
Thomas (out loud): What does FYIA mean?
Katarina: For your information, also. Couldn't you figure that out from the context of what I was saying?
Abbreviations. They are confusing, and could possibly get you in trouble.
Totally unrelated picture alert.
You may have already seen this if you are friends with me on facebook or Google+, because it is my new favorite Katarina picture that has been hiding on my computer.
Like I told my friend Karen - I'm blessed, because the kid and the hat are both mine.
(even if the kid does occasionally use confusing abbreviations)
