Little rascals..

Emoticons...
They are definitely one of the cutest 'inventions' (for lack of a better word) .. Also, they have to be one of the most used/over-used/misused/abused symbols on a day-to-day basis.. But what interests me the most is the name that these little rascals have 'EMOT-ICONS'.. So, when broken down, the name suggests that these are icons that emote the feelings of people.. And trust me they do a wonderful job..

Say for instance, you tell some one 'I LOVE YOU' and they may get freaked out, depending upon what your relationship is.. But just follow this up with our little emoticon 'I LOVE YOU :-P' and wallah!!! they know you are kidding...

But just sit back and think what would happen if the hyphen was moved by a letter to 'EMOTI-CONS'... Right.. these little rascals can also con our emotions.... What if you actually love someone but can't tell them that... You can just slip in a 'I LOVE YOU :-P'... By doing this you have successfully conned your emotions but also got this confession off your chest...

So what the hell, you atleast have had the chance to tell the person.. What if he/she did not get your emoti'c'on... Kudos you little rascals...

P.S: This was just a passing thought and I wrote it down to remind myself that I thought of this thought someday..
