I hate to criticize Lammily -- the new "normal" looking doll for little girls -- as challenging the all-mighty Barbie and her size negative-four standards is a commendable act. That said... I'm about to criticize Lammily.
I don't have a running sticker on my vehicle. For me, it minimizes my accomplishments. My races were rich, vibrant, life-changing experiences that cannot be reflected in a cold, numeric, one-size-fits-all decal. Or maybe it's just my reticent personality.
Admit it, all you really want is the sticker. Yea, yea, yea, it's nice to do our civic duty and all, but nothing beats the feeling you get when at the end of the process, you're handed the "I VOTED TODAY!" sticker.
Emoji are like the smile from a colleague across the room, or the small talk you make walking to get coffee. It's pointless communication that nonetheless puts you in a good mood.
