In association with my question about the meaning of “found-in-a-cabbage-patch look” in the Time magazine’s article, “Playing Favorites,” there was an episode that Charles Dickens experienced a bitter humiliation from his parents’ favoritism to his older sister when he was young. It reads:
“Charles Dickens wrote poignantly about his own LFS, which he experienced most accurately during a period in which his family had only enough money to send his older sister to school while he worked in a boot blacking factory. Even as a highly celebrated adult, he never fully got past the experience.”
What does LFS stand for? Does it mean some traumatic syndrome? I checked the definition of LFS on Google. There were so many definitions of acronyms of LFS that I was unable to close in on the pertinent definition.
