In internet communication I think we find ourselves making statements that aren’t really true, but that help us get the point across anyway.
I just have to wonder:
If you type “LOL,” are you really laughing out loud?
If you say, “Coffee sprayed all over the screen on that one,” or “Pepsi came through the nose when I read that” … did that really happen?
Because if it did, I get the feeling that we’d actually type that out.
