July 17, 2012 ~ heaven AND hell....all in one blog
There’s a special place in hell for people who say “LOL”. Not the ones who TYPE it, I’m talking the ones who SAY it.... I have an acquaintance (can't call her a friend, cuz I really wouldn’t care if she left the country and never came back), who says “LOL” instead of laughing or having a normal human conversation. This puzzles me. And then after she says it, she looks around the room like “Did everyone just hear what I said? Am I not the most clever, hip, super cool text talker you‘ve ever met?” Ugh. (I should add - when my friend was pregnant, this woman kept picking on her weight, so I think that's part of the reason I find her LOL thing particularly annoying).
I wanna punch her in the face. I mean that in the nicest way.
Kay, I don’t really wanna punch her. But I feel like I should do something. is there ever an appropriate time to tell someone “you know you sound like a complete tool when you say that?” Kinda like when I wore faded jean overalls in the 90s - no one told me how dumb I looked. I resembled an out-of-work goth plumber. Why didn’t people intervene?! Could’ve saved me a decade of bad pictures.
I’ll keep my mouth shut. But let it be known to young and old nation wide: there’s never a good time to say “LOL”. It’s as confusing as when people say "that’s funny” instead of laughing. If it were truly funny, YOU’D BE LAUGHING! Kay, I gotta go cool down. How about a few cute kid pics to dropkick me back into sanity?
This is my nephew Benjamin. Sleeping.... My brother took this on their way home from Vermont the other day and called it an "Aunt Lissa Exclusive" cuz I was the only he texted it to - so of course, I hafta share it with the world! ;)
....and THIS is my best friend Shantell's baby boy, Landen. Isn't he just the most adorable thing you've ever seen?!?! I wanna put him in a pita pocket and serve him with chips! Beautiful!
I feel better now. Happiness restored :) xoxo
