Most of the time I feel like a grumpy internet old person, grumbling at the kids to use their words (and get off my lawn, while they’re at it). Because I honestly have no idea how emojis work. I try not to use them, because I worry that I may accidentally pick one that I should have urban dictionary’d first.
(Also, it turns out they look different on different kinds of phones — thanks, tumblr, for teaching me this.)
(But I do have to give them credit for the great “box with a question mark” scene on Brooklyn Nine Nine.)
I often think ‘I should put an emoji here,’ and then I look at the vast array of options and get distracted and I just want to pick one that’s pretty, but then I’m not sure what it means, and I wind up exiting out of the pictures and just typing a colon and an end-parenthesis.
(Seriously, though, I tried to actually type it and my computer automatically converted it to a smiley. But like an only-vaguely-smiling smiley. If I wanted a smiley I would have found one, computer!)
