I finally figured out how to enable the Emoji keyboard on my iPhone, so I immediately sent an illustrated text to Patrick.
Disappointing, really. We may as well all go back to using Morse.
I posted this, and then had a horrifying thought that someone might think it was a slur on a sacred Jewish symbol, the Menorah, so I thought I better explain that somebody wasn’t wearing his reading glasses, and guessed the smile was a lamp, and the eyes two lit wicks, set inside a triangle. Which still wouldn’t make sense as an emoticon, but then, neither does a pirate ghost or panda bear. Or it’s a gestalt that reveals my husband’s mind is on spiritual matters, while mine is in the toilet.
