I was wrestling with my daughter and my nephew when he said, "this place is T," pointing to the sofa. T is short for TO, which, in turn, is short for time out, but neither of these two youngsters seemed to have ever heard time out except in the context of an adult-imposed opportunity for reflection on misbehaviour. The older kid's I've talked to were aware of the source, but the link appears to be fading.
