Serious LOL !?!

imagine-

You are chatting with *whoever* and amidst ur interesting-boring or usual chat, you get a funny line to read from the other side. You are sitting in ur comfortable couch at home, with a normal-almost blank or serious face & eyes glued to the screen. You giggle in ur mind, type "LOL" and carry on with the discussion..

strange.. 

where is the real laughter gone in the middle of lol, rofl, lmao etc...
How often does it happen with you?

& then there are times when something actually makes you do the above.. lol, rofl, lmao etc...

funny.. the impact of technology on us, that is.

Sheesh, I've been trying to be the first to comment here but every time someone or the other beats me to it.

Agree. Many times we type LOL without even a hint of smile just to convey that it was funny. But yes, atleast I burst out laughing and still in type LOL. I think it kinda evens out in the end.

hahaha...now what on earth did I type up there? As if I'm drunk-typing!
I meant "At times I burst out laughing and still type LOL"

Nice post. I agree with you!

lol has actually lost the meaning it was supposed to have. It now means just 'ok' at times. I know people whos every second message has a 'lol' in it. But i make it sure that i 'lol' only when i mean it. Though i dont necessary smile when i type lol. Sometimes i do.

@Dhiren: you are so quick and I am so late in replying to the comments :( .. but you know this happened with me and that is what made me do this post. I smiled in my heart and typed lol or :) but my facial expression didnt change a bit.. i found that strange... even though that doesnt happen everytime.

@GM: ya can fully understand.. it happened with me that day, maybe coz i was sitting all by myself and had nobody to share the smile with .. maybe.. dunno exactly.

@Masood: its fun(strangly) to be the first commenter, isnt it? :) but with some bloggers who have moderation on, its never clear if we gonna be the first.. well, I am glad you read my blog.. :) smiling in real. thank you...lol

@ni: Welcome here!! i guess you are right.. sometimes... and sometimes ppl convey some strong messages with a smiley at the end to make it sound lighter..

@Suma: Dog bark.. now that was hilarious, actually. but imagining someone actually rolling on floor laughing makes me laugh again n go lolam lol!!! the terminology is kinda crazy but fun.
