I remember when I was a teacher, I once said 'OMG' when one of the kids was pratting around. The rest of the class thought that was hilarious because they didn't think teachers knew textspeak.

That must be really difficult when ordering food in a restaurant or asking for directions to the airport.

I'm pretty sure I've never typed it, and the only time I've ever said it is when saying the name of someone who lives two houses away.

How did you articulate it? "Oh Em Gee"? Or "omgg"? Or...?

I'm always reluctant to write LOL, because most of the time, although I might have found something funny, chances are I didn't actually laugh OUT LOUD.

I do my laughing on the inside. *casts emo-like gloomy looks all around*

But sometimes I'll kind of snort, or blow air out my nose in a kind of laughing way, but if I wrote SOL or BAOMN! people wouldn't know whatthefuck I was on about.


So I usually stick to: Hahah. Or Hehheheh (which makes me feel a bit like Muttley from Wacky Races).
