(subtext while reading above messages)
She : Oh my God. He likes Sonakshi. I hate that girl.
He : She put a tongue-out-smiley. She looks so cute that way. I guess Vidya Balan's okay too.
She : Why was there no smiley face ? Is he mad at me ? Did I hurt him by ROFL-ing his taste in Sonakshi Sinha ?
He : She put a smiley-face but not a big grinned smiley face with a 'D' like before. Does that mean she didn't have as much fun as I did ? Or that this message didn't interest her as much as the previous one ?
She : He winked. Oh my God. Oh my God. Is it just his usual mischievous wink or is he flirting with me ?
He : Awww. That smiley is so sweet. Looks adorable. Really can see her smiling like that in my mind.
She : Now it's a normal smiley. Does that mean the other one was just a silly wink ?
He : Oh shit. A kissey-smiley. This is a big step man. It's more than friendship in her heart. I was sensing it all through the evening.
She : Oh my God ! Oh my God ! Oh my God ! He winked and kissey-smiled back. This is true love. I am in love. We are in lovvvvvve.
He : That's the most beautiful smile I've ever seen in my life. I'm in love.
Some day in the near future, aliens will invade and enslave us. They will go through our rich cultural history ( mainly via Wikipedia ) and in the literature section, will read the romantic works of William Wordsworth, Shakespeare and yes, even the Twilight books. And then they will read sms-conversations like the ones above from our Whatsapp/Gmail/message inbox. And they will shoot themselves in the head, distraught over how they could master traveling through space but couldn't decipher the magic language of the smiley-face that we human beings speak so easily.
P.S. Not that it concerns anyone, but as part of three wishes granted by a genie, Shakespeare rose from the grave again recently. He realized that his traditional brand of romantic declarations were not needed anymore now that a single kissey-smiley-face does the same job. Last heard, he's reinventing himself writing a new romantic action-thriller-comedy.
It's tentatively titled "Et :s tu :) Brute 2 :p - The ;return :of Cleopatra ;x".
