Mysteriously; silently; no one knows.


  • First and last letters are often used for the abbreviation of various words. For intendance, Mary Jane is abbreviated by MD, whereas KY is used for the abbreviation of Kentucky. During the 1870s, a famous ballad which was named “The Talkative Man from Popular” included a line that consists of the word quiet. However, that word wasn’t written completely rather it was abbreviated with Q.T. People also think that it might have been used earlier in other writings as well but since 1870s; Q.T is primarily used for the phrase “keep it quiet”.

It’d be better for you to ensure Q.T so that no one will be able to know about your future plans.
