Posters frequently post about how something awesome happened at their school, such as a professor dressing up as a banana and reading fairy tales to the class. Quite obviously, these stories are fake; if they were real, then all MLIA posters probably attend Faggot High School.
MLIA posts are supposed to begin with "Today" and end with "MLIA". However, many posters are so busy fabricating their bullshit stories that they forget to do so. Recently, a trend has developed where posters chronicle an exciting event and end their post with a matter-of-fact statement, such as "Life. Complete." or "I love _____." This statement is meant to be the "punchline" of the pathetic joke that posters are trying to tell.
"Today, I went to Burger King for dinner. Then I went home and watched The Hangover. MLIA."
Note the documentation of events that truly happen in average life.
Fake MLIA post:
"Today, I woke up and decided to dress up as Harry Potter. When I got to school, I discovered that my friends had dressed up as Harry Potter characters as well. Then all of a sudden the entire grade started singing "The Mysterious Ticking Noise" in the hallway. I love my school. MLIA."
Note the documentation of an event that could never happen, except at Faggot High School in Homoville, Nebraska. Also note the homosexuality portrayed by the poster and his matter-of-fact conclusion of "I love my school."
normally used when giving a description to how your life is average, Today, I swallowed a watermelon seed. A watermelon did not grow in my tummy. MLIA
I bought a plant from Home Depot the other day. The cashier told me to water it everyday or else it would die. I didn't water it everyday just to see if it would die. It did. MLIA
Today, everyone walked right past me and didn't even think to sit next to me on the school bus. My feelings aren't hurt though, I'm the bus driver. MLIA.
Batman, Ninjas, and Harry Potter make frequent appearances.
Possibly the best and most entertaining website EVER, it contains the three things that are required to make someone's day.
3. True Life events.
Though the site started as very average and ordinary, with posts such as 'Today I wanted a peanut butter and Jelly sandwich. We were out of Jelly. I just had PB", MLIA has launched into a death spiral of comedy. People from all over the world share events in their life that have occured that other's would find funny, ironic, random, or just plan cool, and are voted upon by readers as 'Average' or 'Meh'.
Heads up; there are many other copycat sites. Fmylife and mylifeistwilight are just a sample. Mylifeisaverage is the original, the best, and the one with the most quality by far.
The readers of MLIA often occur with these traits;
Dis-like if Hatred of Twilight and Miley Cyrus
Lke or Love of Harry Potter
Not so average lives.
Today my father and I went to the grocery store. Because we're Bosnian our dishes usually involve garlic so my father had stocked up enough. The cashier gave us an odd look and my father just shook his head, replying with "Just making sure the vampire stalkers stay away from my daughter. You can never be too safe after seeing that sparkly guy from Twilight." Love you pops. MLIA
Today, I read a story of MLIA about how someone was going to start screaming inside their head to see who would react and was thus a mind reader. I thought it was a good idea and decided to try it. I ended up shouting out loud at an old lady. She definitely flinched.
A site that parodies FML, where people post their "average" stories. The format consists of posting the story, and then putting the acronym MLIA afterwards.
Lately, many of the comments on the stories by members are people complaining about the site isn't "average" anymore, but instead full of funny stories that actually make people laugh.
Apparently these people are stupid and can't accept change. Maybe they need to move out of their parents' basements and stop dragging society down with their shit.
