oh good.

Emojis convey little information to me - I puzzle over them sometimes - like what does the emoji of chocolate soft serve ice cream mean? Why is something splattered all over the partying happy face on the top of your link?

I get a chuckle out of emojis. Youngsters love them and are capable of entire "conversations" by smartphone, using emojis. I can figure out some of them (translated, they are little more than our note-passing back in the day)

I prefer Talk Like a Pirate Day (9/19). Or National Ice Cream Day (today - 7/17). Or even National Run It Up A Flagpole And See If Anyone Salutes day (Jan 2)

Emojis are OK, but today was also National Ice Cream Day, and I celebrated appropriately.

I speak fluent emoji. If only had a Hello Kitty symbol, I would be all set!
