Smiley Faces & Other QWERTY Expressions

“This is the 2nd most viewed post here at Writing is Fun-damental. Let me know if you agree with me.”

Without coming off as counter-cultural, well maybe I am, I  refuse to use 🙂 to imply  I am smiling, or 😦 to solicit sympathy or even 😉  to convey the fact I am just kidding, LOL.

These are keyboard shortcuts that are  compounding  my fear that we , as a society, are abbreviating our way to relegating the King’s English to “Old School Nonsense” status.

Say it’s not so  Shakespeare! Please  join me, as I kick and scream at the very thought.

So for now, “Very, very funny _____ (fill in the blank),  and can you imagine my gleeful facial expression? (I used to think or hope that LOL meant Lots of Love.)

PS I am going to start a list of these symbols, just in case we need a glossary.
