I have learned that the term lol is not short for:
Lovely (which I thought and didnt much like) or
lots of love (which my friend thought was over familiar)
but it is short for laughing out loud! What a change in tone that makes.

I also discovered that I can send a text from my mobile to a landline. It then rings the phone and reads the text in an automated voice. I sent a text saying - boat is late, lol and the person on the receiving end heard, boat is late, laughing out loud in a monotone voice!! That particular discovery has provided me with hours of fun.

Any discoveries your end?

:boxing: Angel small steps lead to great things

Well Tonee thanks to you, I have now discovered that if I send a text to a landline with the letters "lol" at the end, it will say "laughing out loud" in a monotone voice, which has just made me laugh out loud!

That discovery is truly excellent!!!! I'm texting our land line now to experiement!!! :laugh:

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

Well, don't tell us all that you have a secret 'cos that just makes eveyone wet their knickers in excitement/indignation (depending on who you are).

Tell us the bluddy story..... :laugh:
