Ah, jeez. This kind of pushed me over the edge into quiet hysterical giggles at work. You know, hunched over at your desk, shoulders shaking, an occasional faint bizarre snort or hiccup escaping your tightly compressed lips. I'm thinking of variations now. . . . "Smell smoke, pretty sure house iz burning down, need help wif babies, pets, PLEASE!!! Lol." "Grandma passed this morning. 9 years in hosp. unable 2 move but mind stayed sharp as a tack. TUFF OLD BIRD!!! Lol." Maybe . . . maybe he doesn't know what lol means? Like, maybe he thinks it functions the way "STOP" did in telegrams? Bless.
