LOL or LOL
Because I saw this abbreviation LOL on lots of e-mails and posts I just assumed it meant Lots of Love. So I started using it to end my mails or comments on certain posts. Then this morning our career adviser inserted in-between our school papers and memos a copy of CHAT Abbreviations so we may 'keep abreast with the changing times'. To my surprise, I found out that LOL didn't mean the way I thought it meant. To further verify its meaning, I asked my students for after all, I know they spend more time at chat rooms or in their "spaces" than reading their assignments. And yes, LOL is not LOL because Lots of Love doesn't really mean Laugh out Loud!!! To those who may have received my comments or mails, I really meant Lots of Love when I LOLled you!!!
