The Seventh Day of Christmas – Shall we go for a DIP?
Seven swans a swimming. I’d love to suggest we all pop down to Walberswick for a quick dip but despite the proximity of Sizewell I think most people would find it a tad bracing.
Swimming reminds me of swim lanes, beloved of those who do process mapping. The joy of the English language is that we have a tool with which we can communicate with people across whole swathes of the globe. We then put ourselves into a work context and promptly make everything we say unintelligible to anyone outside of the ‘club’. Add to that a whole lexicon of acronyms, abbreviations and jargon; the subterfuge is complete.
Today a quick quest; what is your favourite cross over acronym, abbreviation or piece of jargon; something which in one world means one thing and in another means something else altogether? Mine is o/c in my podiatry life it meant onychocryptosis (ingrowing toenail) in medicine it means oral contraceptive, two things that are best not confused. As for DIP, in podiatry that would be distalinterphalangeal (end small toe or finger joint) for other meanings go here.
Your spotify list for today is here.
Please remember there is still time to enter any of the previous day’s quests (and a prize draw). Effectively they start two days before Christmas with Santa’s little helper.
If you are still in the leg challenge – two people have now cracked it and I am holding their responses to publish later what you need to know is that today 46 more legs were delivered; making 138 delivered so far.
I hope you are still enjoying the 12 Days of Christmas Party #12DCP
