Everyone knows someone without an ounce of LOLLAGE in them. What I mean by that is no sense of humour. No matter how many jokes you crack, their face doesn’t register even the slightest hint of amusement. Boring shits.
The other day I was having an email convo with…let’s call him Humourless Hubert. It was the kind of convo that didn’t inspire much beyond inane chatter, until HH said something I found totally hilarious. And I told him so. I don’t think he found it funny, or what he said wasn’t even meant to be funny, because I haven’t had a response since.
No LOLLAGE, see.
I imagine HH huffed off, thinking me a childish brat for laughing, but I honestly thought he’d see the funny side of it. Evidently not. Ah, well. You can’t live all your life without offending someone…
So, I wonder if next time I hear from Humourless Hubert, whether I can make him laugh. He doesn’t have to respond with a ROFL, LMAO, or even a LOL. A lowercase lol would do me fine. Even a smiley face. EVEN a basic “Ha!” I think it’s my mission this year to make HH laugh.
What experiences have you had with the likes of HH? Please join in and make up a name for your person. I fancy a good laugh. Unlike HH.
