    Wink Would you please edit "A strange icon "

    "A strange friend"

    I would like to know about the reason of moving the eyes of an icon like the second one set in the second line on the left screen. Her rolling eyes are wondering around me, especially above her head and my eyes are wondering at her. She looks for something new pasted on ceiling or follows a tiny spider building its cobweb to catch icon's eyes. Being alone in a room, I write something about this phenomenon designed aimlessly - you don't know why it is made by designers. We may some time discover how to make friends. Unfortunately, she doesn't stop moving even for a moment. Sometimes a little smile in the corner of her lips makes me sad. As if she started laughing at me but attempted to stop doing it. Her round big eyes are moving with no pause. In spite of her aimless movement, she could be a moment friend in order to accompany me to write something new. Any way I appreciate her paying heed to me.

    This is traditionally a sign of contempt. I have written about it before, I'll try to find the thread.

    -I would like to know about the reason of moving the eyes of an ion like the………………
    I’d like to know the reason why the eyes of an icon like that (should) move?

    -As if she started laughing at me but attempted to stop doing it.
    -……But she tried hard to restrain from doing that.

    -you don't know why it is made by its designers.

    -We may someday discover how to make friends.
    Is making friends a discovery?

    -She doesn't stop moving her eyes even for a moment.
    That is just a face. Her eyes are her only moving “organs”.

    -Are moving with no pause.
    Nonstop as an adverb can do the job too.

    -A moment friend: moment is not used as an adjective.

    -In spite of her aimless movements, she could be a momentary friend and join me in writing something new.

    -paying heed: this one sounds to be very formal (I’ve seen it in political and legal contexts only) and doesn’t seem to be the best choice for a short-lived relationship which is based on eye contact.
