Laugh Out Loud- PG 13
Since I am crazy busy I thought I'd pull out a re-post... this is one of my favs...enjoy.
I do have a good love story, but it's full of drinking and good lovin' and Barry Manilow songs and stripper bars and is totally and wildly inappropriate. So we will pass on that for now, but I can't promise I won't hit some kind of writer's block one day and spill every dirty detail. But for now, it's staying back in the past where it belongs.
I do, however, have a story about a crazy lady. Those are always good, right? Well, right or wrong, here we go... (oh, one more thing. I am going to try to make this all cliffhangerish, so play along and beg for more...)
So, you know how some names are ruined forever? Like "Mikey", cause the boy in second grade who had a booger collection and smelled like feet was named "Mikey". Or "Amber", who played "6 minutes in Heaven" with the boy you thought you were "going" with AND went WAY further with him than you EVER would have?
That's how I feel about "LOL". My life would be easier if I could just type those 3 letters to let you all know I think you are funny. Can't do it. It's been ruined. Taken from me like a favorite toy. Gone.
None of you did it. This happened during my "pre-blogging" life...(when I used to take care of my family and shower.) It was a crazy lady who ruined it. And, now, I am left "lol-less", refusing, just to spite her, to ever use it again.
It all began innocently enough. I was new in town, and looking for some local friends. I thought the internet would be a great place to start, and I opened a women's book club on a local meet up site.
It was a day I would live to regret. FOR.EV.ER (Sandlot)

I don't use LOL because it has 2 L's in it, and we all know if it's gonna have 2 L's, it's gotta be LULA!!!!! Do you love how I try to make it all about me?
Man, I'm already hooked (anything having to do with crazy people hooks me).
Begging for more!
I love crazy lady stories!
I will never have to go to Barnes and Noble again.
Seriously...get to writing.
I want to hear about the love, and Barry Manilow.
OK, and the crazy lady, wha happened?
Ladies, she was, (and probably still is), CRAZY. She killed LOL. Beat it to death. And than brought it back to life and killed it again. If she were really laughing out loud that much she would have hyperventilated and passed out.
Maybe hahaha replace those 3 letters?
thanks for my morning chuckle and a trip down memory lane.
More more more.....
I am just getting used to this and gotta learn yet another flippin' language!
ps I hate LOL and ROFL...I'm trying to get over it because I see that it is widely accepted...but I can't bring myself to do it. I have a hard time writing LOL if I'm not actually laughing out loud. Maybe it's the English major in me who has to find just the right words to express my emotions.
LOL would be WAY easier.
Can't wait to read more!!
Ah---days when I took care of my kids and showered. Such ancient history.....
Except, of course, I usually do not laugh out loud---just inside my head.
Speaking of Grammar...why does the song say "I before E except after C"? Look at efficient? It is spelled right! When my mind stumbles on things like this, it's necessary for me to share....sorry!
i have a love/hate relationship with lol...but i use it like it's no one's business. lol! ;)
I have a problem with my -ex's wife's name - same as my sister's first name (which rhymes with mine) with my same middle name. Eewwww!
Please get a writers block, I want to hear the sordid details.
Waiting on the edge of my seat to finish reading...
Anyways, where's the rest of the story?! I HATE cliffhangers! (LoL :D)
I love you now and FOR.EV.ER.
And I still remember the book club crazy lady story. Have we been together that long? Wow!
