some of you (most of you) know how chatty i am… and this goes across all methods of communication. i am chatty when speaking and, frankly, chatty while texting. who can possibly respond adequately all the time.
i have high standards when it comes to the written response. and although my husband is up to the task, he’s busy, and not always in the mood to cater to one of my gazillion needs.
well, now with the emoticon, he can text all i need to read without laboring over the content.
like the cornell school employee who ended each salacious sentence with
"!!! :)" my husband is using his own favorite symbols to show his feelings.
he uses the devil when i’ve typed something naughty, or a smiley when i’ve said something he likes. and often he uses the confused smiley…because sometimes i don’t make a lot of sense.
you get the idea.
(btw, when my husband read this blog post, he said i am a loser and then used the emoticon for "i need a drink"…which is a mug of beer.)
