Bad Play On Words Day
Have you ever watched a conversation unfold that made you cringe? One where someone makes a bad play on words, unintentionally, but doesn’t realize their mistake? The word “awkward” doesn’t suffice. It’s more of a cringe, deep inside that you can’t describe.
Recently, a family member told us how they had mistakenly interpreted “LOL”, the famous Laugh Out Loud acronym, for Lots of Love. We had a good laugh over her mistake until she told us she had sent a text to her friend who had recently lost her husband. In what was meant to be an encouraging note, she said: “Always remember the good times you two had. Thinking of you. LOL”
(Insert indescribable “cringe” feeling here)
