It is a medical term originating from the Latin word "statem", which means IMMEDIATELY.
It also stands for Sooner Than Already There ... which pretty much says it all.
Example: Get me some Ben & Jerry's STAT.
I need a hot water bottle for these stupid cramps STAT.
SOMEBODY BRING ME SOME CHOCOLATE ... STAT.
Can you tell I have a touch of PMS?
Unfortunately, hubby also has PMS. The male kind. Otherwise known as "piss & moan syndrome". You see, he doesn't feel good. And he wants a drink. And a sandwich. And the TV remote.
How 'bout this? I claw out your eyeballs, squeeze out the juice, and use the leftover pieces to make a sandwich.
Then you won't need the dang TV remote.
PMS is ug-lay. Yes, indeed.
