What emoji(s) do you like to use?

Bzz bzz. Kerry checked her phone and sighed. “hey boo,” she read, followed by a string of emojis. She turned and said, “Hey Norma, my girlfriend just sent me a text. Do you know what what this means?”

Norma glanced at Kerry’s phone and said, “She’s thinking about you and can’t wait for dinner.”

With a quizzical expression, Kerry alternated looking at Norma and her phone. “How do you know what all that means? I mean, why did she send a poop emoji? We’re not in a kind of relationship where we need to tell each other what we’re doing at every waking moment.”

Norma laughed. “That poop emoji is referencing you,” Norma said, and knew what the question that was coming.

Kerry made a face. “Just because my skin is brown doesn’t mean I am s*** or my self-esteem is s*****,” Kerry said. “I’m gonna give her a piece of my mind,” and began typing with her index finger.

Norma put her hand over Kerry’s. “Hold up,” said Norma, “that poop emoji means before anyone else, and before anyone else means you are the most important person in her life. You are the most important person in her life, right?”

Kerry exasperated. “Why can’t she just use words? You just did deciphering that alien language.”

“It takes practice,” said Norma. “Look, you have a thinking emoji before bae – before anyone else – which means she’s thinking about you….”

Thanks for reading. Some may interpret this story as negatively portraying same sex couples. I write this to show that same sex couples go through misunderstandings, much like heterosexual couples, so people are more alike than they are not.

    1. I had to do research on that, and I think it’s an older interpretation of the poop emoji. According to the www, BAE is the Danish word for poop, but people re-interpreted BAE as an acronym for “Before Anyone Else.”
