Default A dumb question-can't hold off asking any longer??

Sorry to be really thick. I don't post often on here but read it at every spare moment as I am going through the agonizing process of WAITING!!

Please, kindly let me in on what 'LOL' means. I know you all use it, perhaps because you know each other well and maybe it should be obvious to me but I have been racking my brains for weeks and can't work it out. I'm a bit shy and have wanted to ask for ages but thought maybe it will become clear but 'eureka' hasn't happened. I have, therefore, taken the plunge and possible humiliation of having to ask.

Please be easy on me?

And empathy to all who are waiting and waiting. It's driving me mad and from what I read here, I know I am not alone.

Cheers.

PS - now able to understand much better and will potentially be laughing out loud after the G &T I got myself after posting my dumb question and your 2 minute reply.

Cheers.

You have cheered up my evening.

What's PS then?? As per your suggestion - Not at that stage for a few decades I hope. Want to be gone long before that scenario!! G & T's (in moderation of course - up to 14 units per week per female - best enjoyed while surfing british expats.com!!) Lot of laughs in the meantime one hopes!!

Women beware.......I used to work for a Pharmaceutical company and they had a drug for Stress something Incontinence Urine Disorder. It affects a lot of woman, I cant remember the exact figures but its a lot higher than anyone would think.

Sorry to put that bit in!
