Oh yes I have been resisting them,
ohh and yes I have been discussing them , writing about them..
uhh yes and I have been judging them,
almost cursing them.
And then you find yourself in the position of ‘an emergency case’ of using them.
At least that is what I thought that this was the moment to use it ..
Why did I permit myself to use the winking smiley without even being really sure I will use them right?
Lets go to the basic definition of an emoticon, that is nothing more than a series of punctuation marks that form a face, expressing an emotion.
That’s right, an emoticon can express in a couple of dots and lines what you could not describe in words.
And I found myself in precisely that position that my text was not expressing exactly what I wanted to communicate !
So what happend ? ,and oh my lord I beg you to understand I was not trying to be winking wrongly or weirdly or,.
I just had to write a message politely, even though I had written it before it involved some urgency from my part, probably not on the to do list for the receiving end, so I needed to put some lightness to it without being too pushy .
-Pushy-not pussy 😉 ( pay attention please ) –
But similar to a wink in real life, the winky face is more than just a simple smile.
It can mean that what you’ve just said is a complete lie or even that you’d like to do something a little bit more than just deliver a letter into someone’s letter box..
Oh help what will this man think?!
I learned also that it is a cool way of saying “you know what I mean” I hope my man will choose that option ,.
It stays fairly open to interpretation though and please let this person who I winked at be someone whose creativity in understanding will lead to not be mislead by my winking and will let him understand my humbleness but importance in the message .
I think next time I will call.
Those series of punctuation marks is not my thing , I guess .
