Have you tried to decipher your teen’s texts? Emoji’s are harder to translate because one symbol can have multiple meanings.
- Frog can mean someone is “ugly.”
- Dog can be an insult of the b-word.
- Flowers can mean drugs.
- A running man and a bowling ball means, “I’m going to hit you.”
- Fruit usually references sexual body parts or sexual activity: a peach is a rear end and an eggplant is a penis.
- A fist and an eggplant means masturbation.
- A pointing right finger and a hand making the ok sign means sex.
- Footprints can also mean beer.
- A pair of eyes can mean the sender is asking for naked pictures.
- Scissors mean “I’m going to cut you.”
