Why you sometimes shouldn't use shortened forms of words

Virtually everyone who works at magazines refers to headlines as "heads."

But when I left the following note on a designer's desk this morning, asking if an editor had given her a headline for a feature story ...

Did [name] give you head?

... well, I realized that could be taken the wrong way.

Yes, TVB is "working blue" today.
