She wanted to send her friend a giant hug. So she defaulted to her usual methods: she would send a modern hug of the text variety. But her efforts were quickly stymied when she realized that there were no emoticons for touching of any kind. Ironically, she could send a masked face to prevent the spread of germs …. but she couldn’t virtually hug anyone.
She was going to have to make do with words for now and possibly even make time for a real embrace.
She was kind of annoyed. Didn’t the world already know she had trouble expressing her emotions to other people ?? And now she was going to be emoticonically challenged too….
