So now you know everything you wanted to know about me but were afraid to ask. 😛 I’m just bombastically crazy about smilies. Full stop.
Exactly, what is a smiley?
The Oxford Dictionary tells us the meaning of ‘smiley’ – It is a simple picture of a smiling face that is drawn as a circle with two eyes and a curved mouth.
It goes on to say that these symbols are used in email or text messages to show that the person sending the message is pleased or joking. 😮
Wiktionary says that smiley means cheerful and happy; smiling.
These zany yellow smilies are featured with big grins, cheeky winks, dark shades, 👿 devilish ears, green-eyed , teary-eyed and boggle-eyed. 😯 Among my favourites is the one with two little red hearts on the forehead. Look it up, check it out. Too cute.
