More comments

I just had to add a few tidbits to May B. Insane's post...

1) yeah, I used to use "el" a lot as an abbreviation in school- it could mean electron, electrolytes, or electricity depending on the class...
2) I'm glad May B. can read her own handwriting because nobody else can...
3) Other fun abbreviations- OD, OS, OU- right ear, left ear, both ears respectively
4) I do like reader Outrider's comments- DIC can mean disseminated intravascular coagulation, dead in cage or death is coming...
5) another of Outrider's comments- CTD = circling the drain

We have a lot of morbid funny comments. Sometimes you have to be morbid to get through the day...

Morbid - oh yes, some very morbid. And awful. (but mostly funny)
