I’m sure most of us know that LOL stands for Laugh Out Load. When this abbreviation was first being used a friend used it in an email to me. I thought it meant Love O’ Lots!
There are now many of these abbreviations like TMI, Too Much Information or IDNK, I Did Not Know.
I hate all of them.
They remind me of the pathetic and phrenetic world we now inhabit. Speed and the attendant loss of attention spans is now the accepted, even lauded norm.
We have lost much by such verbal shortcuts.
Christians should joyfully stand against the dismantling of language.
IMO, of course!
