(A few recent texts from my mom -- or KK, as everyone calls her.)
I think the greatest day of my mom's life was the day Apple introduced the iPhone. The second best was when she discovered the emoji app.
I love getting Mom's texts. They are like the Rebus puzzles in Highlights magazine.
Apparently this is a big thing now. Gizmodo posted a story Tuesday titled, "Emoji Storytelling is Objectively the Best Use of Emoji," and I'm dying for a new post on Narratives in Emoji.
Mom's not the only one with an emoji addiction. Junior from Betty is constantly on his phone, and it looks as though he's just as into the silly faces as my mom.
There are also plenty of other comics characters who are into texting:
Ooh! Just got a new text ... g2g! ttyl! ;) ;)
