the acronyms among us

This just tickled my funny bone. I was designing a picture book cover and had two acronyms I didn't understand in an e-mail and went to look them up in a Glossary of Book Publishing Terms. I really can't deal with acronyms, I always forget what they mean. (Those in question were PLC - printed laminate case - and TPS - trimmed page size.)

Then Hattie, my publicist, sent this review from Teach Primary magazine which addressed exactly with this, and how my inability to process acronyms led to what is now Oliver and the Seawigs. Cheered me up enormously!
