Sauropod away . . .

Someone close to me sent me a text.  On my birthday.  Wonderful!  Very kind.

And then I spotted in a string of emojis they had added at the end of the message, what appeared to be one of a dinosaur.

A dinosaur?  Yes.  It forced me to ask whether this was some subtle reference to my age.

Oh no, they replied . . . “I’ve just decided to put random emojis on texts.  Seems a shame to use so few of them.  However, I hadn’t considered the nuances of each one.”

I admired this very considered, reconsidered position on their new emoji habit.

But it was the notion that there are things so often unsaid that really appealed.  Yes, it does seem a shame to not communicate when we really can and should.  I agree.
