    Default *Fluff* What do you think?

    Is this emoji ‘hands praying’ or is it hands high-fiving? I thought it was one thing, but read that it’s another. Curious what people think it is.

    Praying. Even typing out the word my phone gives me that emoji as a replacement option.

    I’ve always thought praying too, but read that’s it’s ‘high-fiving’ which never occurred to me!

    Another question..

    To drop the kids off at the pool.

    Is it using the toilet? Or a guy wacking off?

    I say a guy wacking off because the toilet is the pool and the sperm are the kids.

    I always thought it was the toilet. That saying makes me cringe, as it has racial connotations.

    Yeah I'm not a fan either. I know some people say it has racial connotations but these days everything does. Maybe that's where the saying came about.. I don't know. I like to think we have evolved from that era and it's in the past. There are a lot of sayings that have evolved over time to have different meanings. I'm simply asking what people, if they have heard of it, think this is referring to these days. Obviously, the guy is going to the toilet in some way. If someone is trying to say they needed to wee or poop then that's fine. If they are saying in code to be polite is "sorry I'm a few minutes late, I was about to leave but then had a sudden urge to master ate that wouldn't go away so I had to take care of it" then that's a tad weird and creepy. But hey, some guys are over sharers and so are some girls. We all have some weird period or birth story we may tell a good friend.
