  1. I’m not overly fond of these new-fangled abbreviations as there is always the risk that some people overuse them. The “D”, as far as I know, can also stand for “Damn”.

    By the way, you’re PGL… Pretty Good-Looking.

    I completely agree with you, but they are fun to learn and use sparingly. Yes, ‘D’ can mean ‘Damn’ too, but I always try to keep my posts clean. LOL. Thanks so much for your comment. I really appreciate it. Have a great rest of the weekend!

    Any difference between “darn” and “damn”?

  4. Yvonne says:

    Darn and damn are pretty close in meaning. Darn is just really a ‘bad word’ like damn. So, it’s a softer and nicer word.
