been on these forums for a while now.

people keep using terms like DOD

I have no idea what this means.

I've pieced together all the others like DH and such but this one still gets me.

I think people get so deep in these forums they forget alot of people think they are speaking in code

It used to mean "drink of the day" for us - until our son started college at a service academy. Now it means "Department of Defense."

I remember when I didn't know what the acronyms were... and now I'm at fault for constantly using them!!!

Good for you for asking... This is the place where it's safe to do that!!!

I got so confused about all of the DW DH DD DS OP.
I had no clue what any of that meant.
I used a friend of mine that explaind it all to me.
Google.
I googled "message board abbreviations"
and it showed so many, most that I have not even seen
yet, Thank goodness!

I have experienced D.O.D. meaning different things at different times.

From experience, D.O.D. can mean headache after 16 or its time for some Wild Mid Morning Monkey Knock'n!

My experience is that the DODs don't change a bunch...

My girlfriend did have something different on the Dream but I'm sure it was still a standard DOD...




It was a Mocha Lotta Chocolate or some such thing. She claimed that it was great and had a heck of a punch!

My favorite it the Cozumel but it's tough finding someone who knows how to make it!!
