But they don't teach emoticons in school, and some of them are actually hard to understand — at least for some of us.

We were at a Japanese restaurant and I saw something in his eyes - I didn't know what it was but I knew I could see deep into them - I came home and called my mom and told her "I'm going to marry him." Well, who knows if that part is true, but we are certainly on the right track ☺️
