do you ever find yourself using cafemom lingo in other places like facebook?

sometimes when im typing a comment on a friends status or whatever on facebook, ill start to write things like ds and imo and then i stop myself and remember they are not on cafemom. lol. but i kind of wish this was a universal language because its much easier, then again maybe not because its like our own little special thing right.

  • Yes... Or when exchanging emails with a friend... Im like "KWIM?" ... and i usually get a response with Huh? KWIM? What, you lost me!?
    This particular friend I thought she would understand some of it since she has a CM account.. obviously doesnt use it as much as i do... *blushes*

  • When I'm talking to my husband I'll say "DH" sometimes in reference to someone else's husband.

  • Nope. I don't even use it here. Well, I think I used MIL once but I've seen that way before Cafe Mom.

  • It's internet lingo and yes I use it when I am making quick replies but I also like to type out my words. I do not use Internet slang in my emails, it looks very unprofessional
