Yep, this happened to me just this week. A friend (who I shared the story of his first bean dip earlier today) was talking about something and I replied, "oh just bean dip him next time!" I felt silly when I realized that he had no idea what I was telling him. ;) I explained it to him and now he is off in the world trying to spread his own bean dip lol.

I've nearly said Pod and referred to family by their online lingo (DH, DD, etc.) out loud in conversations before.  I'm so glad I haven't actually done it...yet.  I'm sure people are going to think I'm a wacko.   :D

I've also almost podded someone in other forums.

Some coworkers and I do say "That made me LOL!" but we know what we're saying and it's all a goofy joke amongst us.  But I'm sure casual observers would be confused.

When I first read this forum, I couldn't figure out POD at all, it took ages. I do find myself using DH / MIL etc. in everyday speech though, especially as they are used on a lot of other forums. People have looked at me as if I was barmy!

Mom has started using MOB instead of her name at the end of emails.
