LOL or SOL


I see LOL a lot on emails and comments to blogs and such. It took me a while to get it. LOL means “Laughing Out Loud!” …. First I wondered if it means “Lots of Love” or maybe for the “Love or Life”… nah, they didn’t fit the situation – but Laughing Out Loud would fit in with their comments.

Maybe the reason it took me a while to get it is that I don’t normally laugh out loud. Anna will see something in the paper she feels is funny and share it will me and I usually smile, make a grunt, nod my head, and go back to what I was doing. I rarely laugh out loud.

However, I do smile when I think something is funny. So, maybe I should put S instead of LOL. Then again, sometimes, if something funny takes me by surprise I might let out a breath or a loud sigh, which is sort of like a “smile out loud”. Maybe I should put SOL. But then again, they might think I am saying “Shit Out of Luck!”

Some people put < G > for a grin, or < VBG > for the obvious. Those of us who frequently laugh out loud put 'Whahahahahahaha' or ROFLOL when something is so funny that LOL isn't enough.

< Smile > might clearly designate your emotion.

It would be easier to remember if it was GUCCHI

Giggling Uncontrollably, Cackling, Coughing and Hyperventilating Incontinently.

-- I can make them up, I can't remember what the initials stand for. Actually I think the pocketbook people are Gucci.
