    Yer wrang. Or at least, if my understanding is correct you are. It's a list of things to ensure you have on your person. Spectacles, Testicles, Wallet and Watch.

    An old friend of mine used to include it as part of his morning routine. SSS followed by STWW. The first three S's took place in the bathroom.

    For reference we were discussing why it takes women so much longer to get ready to go anywhere. We were comparing what we each considered 'necessary' to do and gather together before we were 'ready'. He insisted that all he needed of a morning was SSSSTWW. I argued about his ordering of the three S's as I felt that doing one of them after you shower and before you shave would undo the good work of the shower and make shaving an unnecessarily stinky affair. However I lost the argument entirely when my own acronym ended up longer than the alphabet.

    That's the order I'd have thought too. He insisted that you shower first and shave last. His logic being...well I can't even remember now, but suffice to say, wrong.

    Doh! Of course...I did wonder why the clergy would be involved. Now it all makes sense.

    Funnily enough, even though I was brought up RC, I'd never heard it until I saw Nuns on the Run on TV, in which the Robbie Coltrane character uses it to explain how to do the SotC to the Eric Idle character.

    When my son was about 6 years old he developed a simple code system to plan his day.

    For example:

    GU = get up
    EB = eat breakfast
    GTS = go to school

    etc.

    One day his mother and I were puzzled by the entry SF

    On enquiry, he advised us that SF = Speech Ferapist.

    Prior to that we had been in denial about his need for any of that!
