Group MMS: emoticon impersonations.

I am talking to you, iphone users. 
Surely you group text with your friends, yes? Well we have a little group of my best girlfriends that constantly group text each other all day long. Mostly about our whereabouts, what we ate for lunch, how many days until the weekend, just actually WHAT time WILL we arrive at Two Keys for the game Saturday, you know the important things. 
Well yesterday, I was bored whilst being abused at the allergist… exhibit A: 
Eww, that was kinda nasty, sorry about that. 
But anyway, so I decided to amuse not only myself,  but my group mms girlfriends as well by trying to imitate some of my favorite iphone emoticons. 
Because that is absolutely normal right? Well this guy is one of my favorites… I think you all know who I am talking about… 

I immediately got this back from Leah… and the game of ‘guess which emoticon I am’ began. 
Ellen AND Dana…
Moi again… 
Aaaaand maybe again this morning.
This girl is definitely my favorite. She says so many things, like ‘stop it’ or ‘don’t even’ and the occasional  ‘I can’t’…
I promise you my friends are normal, see:
Who am I kidding? We a’int normal. Not in the slightest.
You might remember Jami, from Dana’s wedding when she got attacked by a bat here!
Or Brooke for teaching us how to make pimp cups here!
Or Leah from her college shenanigans here!
Or Dana from her cray cray bachey party here!
Or Emily from our Blonde and Blue trip here!
or Ellen, from this bittersweet post here!
I love all you girls, and thanks for making my days extra hilar. Hope everyone enjoyed our emoticon impersonations as much as I did, because I am still laughing. 
And if you don’t have an iphone, or emoticons… well, I can’t help ya. πŸ˜‰

    1st of all, you and your girlfriends are HILARIOUS!

    2nd, you should come to Japan! At least once a day I get your favorite emoticon IRL. That's how they say no around these here parts! No joke! No seats available? BAM! No gaijin {foreigners} allowed? BAM! Out of something your order? BAM! Taking photos where you shouldn't be? BAM! For reals. I'll have to try to snap a photo of someone doing that to me one time and send it to you =}
