When I use GSIL, it's short for Golden sister in law. You know, the one who can do no wrong and her excrement must be golden coins, the way the ILs act :?

Why does DD stand for Dear Mom. Why isn't it "DM"? What does the second "D" stand for? I thought it stood for Daughter as in DD = Dear Daughter.

What about BIL for Brother in Law. He is the in-law I hate the most but I didn't find that in the list.

I've been using
DN = Dear Niece/Nephew
ODB = Older Dear Brother
YDB = Younger Dear Brother
DA and DU = Dear Aunt and Dear Uncle, AIL and UIL = Aunt in Law and Uncle in Law
GC = Grandchild/children

I hope that's right.
