Apparently I’ve been doing it wrong. For a while. Most of the time it’s on purpose. But sometimes I just didn’t realize there was a different way, a better way.
It seems the titles of my posts are too long according to some. Spelling out Stay at Home Dad is long form and not internet friendly. Turns out Stay at Home Dads have an acronym. Well color me surprised.
All this time I had no idea I belong to Stay At Home Dads. Or SAHDs.
Huh, who knew? I think this is my first acronym. Well other than WOP, which didn’t start out as a derogatory term for Italians, but an acronym indicating an immigrant had arrived on America’s shores With Out Papers. Just so happens that Italians, by percentage, arrived With Out Papers more than any other immigrant group during the big wave of immigration in the late 1800s early 1900s.
Anyway I’m a SAHD. I’m assuming the H is silent which would make us all SAD, although I’m not. To tell you the truth, go to any SAHD web site and they are generally sad or mad about something. It could be some ill treatment they feel they’ve received from a women comedienne or they might be railing and wailing because they have been grievously wronged by a diaper commercial. I had just such an experience not that long ago. Wrote about it here: I’ll be takin these Huggies
But what do y’all think? Is the H silent? Comment below, you know the drill.
I’m not even sure how to pronounce it if the H isn’t silent. No matter, I don’t think I’ll be saying it very much. But I will be using it in the title of the posts from now on. Because the one overriding characteristic of my life is that I’m lazy. The only reason I “work smarter” is because the “not harder” portion is thrown in.
Not sure if there is an initiation or a pledge week, or some other high-jinx, you know fraternity style. Is there a secret handshake, a high sign, gang symbol? I really need to do some research. Although not sure when I can do that since I’m SAHD’n all the time.
So yeah, SAHD. I guess I’ll learn to like it.
