When you get there, click one of the Alphabet letters at the top (well, half way down) to be jumped to that position in the list.

With the arrival of the mobile phone, young people developed the art of communicating with texting codes, like LOL, OMG, TTYL, etc.
When we were younger, we used to do something similar by writing SWALK or ITALY on the back of the envelope to our messages to girl(boy)friends.

SWALK = Sealed With A Loving Kiss
ITALY = I Trust And Love You

Tony Hancock claimed in one of his early TV shows, that OHMS stood for Our Hearts Merge Sweetheart.


Not to be outdone, a whole new range of these has been developed for Senior Citizens.

    ATD = At The Doctors

    SBA = Severe Back Ache

    BFF = Best friends Funeral

    BTW = Bring The Wheelchair

    BYOT = Bring Your Own Teeth

    FWIW = Forgot Where I Was

    GGPBL = Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low

    GHA = Got Heartburn Again (for males); = Got Hot Flush Again (for females)

    NMT = No Motion Today

    GISA = Glad I'm Still Alive

    GCDO = Grey Cells Day Off

    TLDR = Too Long, Didn't Read

    HASM = Having A Senior Moment

    SCAN = Senior Citizen, Afternoon Nap

    WMP? = What's My Password?

    WDIPMG? = Where Did I Put My Glasses?

    KBT = Knees Bad Today

    WDWPTC? = Where Did We Park The Car?

    RBS = Really Bad Shoulder

    APUA = Arthritis Playing Up Again

    LSMTRDML = Laughed So Much Tears Ran Down My Legs

    WDIWIH? = What Did I Want In Here

    WAY? = Who Are You?
