What can YOU say in six sentences?
Just before what’s left of my brain kicked in this morning, I had this idea. Since no one seems to be able to tear their thumbs away from their textophones anyway these days, why not “add an app” that would help ease those angst-ridden moments when (gasp!) actual human, verbal, face-to-face communication is unavoidable? I’m talking about audiomoticons. (Huh?) I’m talking about an app where, if you absolutely can’t avoid conversation (eek!), you have at your disposal a collection of coded enhancements you can thumb into your speakerpod to help the listener fully grasp how you’re feeling about your own words (WOW!!!).
If, for example, you ran into your grandmother on the street — the one who never really learned to tweet (wha..?) — or maybe her tweeter’s in the shop for repairs (Boooo!) and you wanted to tell her all about your neighbor’s new baby (Awwww), or how your wife ran over the cat that morning (Yikes!), or about the boil on your backside (Ick!), all you’d have to to is whip out your trusty I-Berry and punch in a couple of numbers and (YAY!) you’ d have immediate, appropriate, and vociferous “audience” response/enhancement to ensure the poor screenless old lady really “gets” what you’re actually using your mere voice, instead of your magic keyboard, to communicate (ooooooh, ahhhhh)(YAY!!!!).
I could have this thing on the market tomorrow (CHEERS!) at only a nominal cost (grumble, grumble,grumble).
