Most of you probably know the internet lingo "LOL" which means "laugh out loud."
I personally find that it's being grossly overused these days.
When was the last time you actually laughed out loud when your waitress brought you the wrong meal? Or when your lost keys were in the last place you looked for them?
Yet I've seen people post those very same statuses with "LOL" right after them.
If those things happened to me, I'd be happy if I didn't "CUB" instead. (Curse Under my Breath)
But who am I to judge?
I mean, if I were the judge, of course I would regulate it's overuse. And while I was on the job, I'd also ban people on Facebook from posting status updates like this:
MaryJane "doesn't have anything new to report, just another day."
Then why exactly did you write anything at all? Don't you know that I attempt to keep my Facebooking to a minimum and would like to quickly scan the newsfeed for something interesting?
You found out the gender of your baby? yes! Post it!
You're moving? Fill us in!
An urgent need for prayer? I'm all ears!
Not so important:
What you're eating for lunch, that you have a headache, your dog is being groomed, you're bored, and any post that vaguely alludes to something that you obviously aren't inclined to share the details about.
Keep it to yourselves folks!
Pardon me, apparently I forgot that I'm really not the judge.
Please, carry on.
That was quite the tangent anyway. What I intended to post about was my husband and his endearing quality of Laughing out Loud.
When we watch something funny, I often find myself not watching the show, but watching him instead.
Josh loves a good laugh. He loves physical comedy-- you know, like when people fall down and hurt themselves.
Which means he's a big fan of cheesy movies like Stepbrothers, Dodgeball, etc. Sometimes he'll pull up YouTube and literally search for "people hurting themselves."
He'll get online and watch clips from Saturday Night Live.
And he'll LOL.
I caught him in the act yesterday.
Maybe it's because he's my husband and I love him, but when I watch this, it makes me laugh out loud.
So LOL with me in my husband's honor, and if you're so inclined, feel free to rant in the comments about your least favorite internet faux pas.
