Greetings.
I'm looking for an acceptable plural of the honorific abbreviation "Cde." ("Comrade"). Using (1) as an example, which of (2), (3), or (4) would be considered the most correct? Are "Cdes." or "Cds." attested in literature?
(1) Mr. Smith thanks Messrs. Collins and Baker.
(2) Cde. Smith thanks Cdes. Collins and Baker.
(3) Cde. Smith thanks Cds. Collins and Baker.
(4) Cde. Smith thanks Cde. Collins and Cde. Baker.

Regards,
Tristan

I'd go for 2, but that's a wild guess.

Is this same thing as "such is life"?
Gimme a mongoose, and while you're at it, gimme another one.

Here you are (AmE = there you go)

In US speak: "Here you are","Here you go" are both OK. "There you go" can also be used after serving up a food order or other requested item(s), but it also has the meaning of "Isn't that just like you?" or, as Reagan said "There you go again", as a comment on someone's unwelcome or repetitious behavior.
