1963 through 2008, me to my mom:
Very funny mom
2009 through ?, my son to me:
Very LOLish mom
In case you are not familiar with the term “LOL” (besides asking “where have you been?”), here is the definition from the Urban Dictionary:
It’s original definition was “Laughing out loud” (also written occasionally as “Lots of Laughs”), used as a brief acronym to denote great amusement in chat conversations.
Now, it is overused to the point where nobody laughs out loud when they say it. In fact, they probably don’t even give a shit about what you just wrote. More accurately, the acronym “lol” should be redefined as “Lack of laughter.”
Depending on the chatter, its definition may vary. The list of its meanings includes, but is not limited to:
”I have nothing worthwhile to contribute to this conversation.”
“I’m too lazy to read what you just wrote so I’m typing something useless in hopes that you’ll think I’m still paying attention.”
“Your statement lacks even the vaguest trace of humor but I’ll pretend I’m amused.”
”This is a pointless acronym I’m sticking in my sentence just because it’s become so engraved into my mind that when chatting, I MUST use the meaningless sentence-filler ‘lol.’”
It’s my 9 year old son’s newest “phrase”. It took me about 15 minutes to translate to my parents what “Very LOLish” means. I’m still not sure they “get it”.
