I notice you start a lot of sentences with "haha". Just wondering why that is?

Haha J.  I forgot what you call it but it’s like “lol” it doesn’t actually mean what it literally means anymore.  It’s a linguistic tool that helps to convey a certain tone or emotion.  For me, it’s a way of “smiling” over text only communication.  To let you know that I’m not upset or angry or judgmental. To let you know that I’m happy to talk with you.  I’m pretty sure I started the habit way back in my AIM days in Junior High around the same time everyone else in the world was figuring out this new language that we are still evolving.

For more linguistic fun I highly recommend the podcast the Allusionist. You can find it at:
