The following is the (almost) verbatim transcript of an actual conversation between two married senior citizens about emojis. The video-recorded conversation was sent to me via text from an anonymous source, and is transcribed here with permission:
Wife: What do you think about the word "emojis?"
Husband: What are emojis?
Wife: It's a hot new thing. Emojis, I believe, are the . . . um . . . the sort of icons and pictures that you make when you email and text.
Husband: Oh, oh I see. Emojis. What do I think of them? [inaudible].
Wife: Yeah, I mean it's a whole new word! They just keep talking about emojis!
Husband: Oh yeah, now I've seen it. Now I recognize it. I've seen it. What do I think of the word?
Wife: It was in ... it was in the crossword puzzle yesterday.
Husband: Oh, oh.
Hilarious, adorable, and completely priceless!
