An elder friend of mine, who has long since passed, a couple decades ago passed along a term I oft used in the past but all but forgot about, until recently. 

She was a diminutive woman – mild mannered, patient and pressing for the positive. Some time in my mid-thirties I’m sure I was relaying to her some rugged circumstance I was having to deal with, when she said nonchalantly, “Sounds like an AFGO to me.” “AFGO?” “Yes – Another F _ _ _ _ _ _  Growth Opportunity.”
