*POLL COMING*

It's been years since I've hand written a letter or just a little informal note to somebody and I can't remember if it's normal or not to actually write "lol" in a letter like we do so often over the internet and in text messages.

I was writing a letter to my friend in the army and after writing something humorous I put "lol" and continued. Then I was like "wait a minute" so I stopped and looked at it and it just seemed weird. I erased it and put "haha" instead lol.

Eh it's not even really an issue or anything, it just bewildered me for a split second and also reminded me of how long it's been since I've handwritten anything that wasn't for school (and I haven't been in college for about a year either). So I haven't handwritten much of anything at all. It looks like my handwriting has even gotten a little sloppier lol.

I was sort of thinking the same. I didn't want her to read it and be like "whoa he actually writes that out in a letter? He needs to get off the computer" lol. But I've just gotten so used to typing it out and seeing it all the time in typed messages.

I don't on the internet, let alone in a letter. I personally always attempt to type with perfect grammar (although I probably make my mistakes here and there). I don't have a problem with improper grammar, but I have O.C.D. and there is no way I am ever going to post something that I know has a grammatical error.

what's a handwritten letter?
i thought i had magic fingers once, and had uncovered the fountain of love.

turns out my girlfriend was just peeing on me.

If you actually say "lol" in conversation, you've failed miserably.
