World Emoji Day

Lordy, Lordy, I'm not ready yet to write about the meeting between the Presidents of Russia and the USA. I fear my blood pressure would rise too high!

Besides, it's World Emoji Day, I just learned.

Who knew?

Who would want to know?

I read an article about Apple's new emojies  for World Emoji Day. (My spell check doesn't like "emojies". Maybe 'Emoji' is one of those words like Halibut, Knickers, Wood, Flour, Deer, Dice, Swine, Concrete, Grapefruit, Jeans, Tweezers and Squid that are both singular and plural. Most nouns have a plural form, but some don't,  like those above along with Sugar that have the same spelling and pronunciation whether there is one grain of Sugar or five pounds of Sugar. But all this is aging English Major pondering....Let it go, Jim....)

World F-ing Emoji Day--who in God's good Earth decided that?

I could not define 'emoji' for you beyond saying "some annoying cartoon thing that I have no Idea what it means and no idea at all how to create...."

And today the world celebrates emoji?

Trump is an emoji to me--something I have no idea what it means.

World Emoji Day reminds me of an Ogden Nash poem.

"I've never seen a purple cow,
I never hope to see one.
But I can tell you here and now,
I'd rather see than be one."

Change 'Purple cow" to 'Emoji" and you catch my drift.

While Rome is burning we are celebrating World Emoji Day!!!!!!!!!

(Imagine the !!!!'s stretching out to eternity.....)
