It was a typical Sunday morning: coffee in the sun room, me and the paper, the wife and her phone. But this day as I read, I became increasingly aware of the wife’s good mood. She was humming, swaying, and tapping away on her phone like I never saw before. I’m not a nosy man but when she put her phone down and went to the kitchen to refill our cups, curiosity got the best of me. I reached over and grabbed her phone and to my utter astonishment this is what I saw:
A cold chill possessed my spine. I heard her happy humming returning so I swiftly snapped this screenshot, texted it to my own phone, and replaced her phone just in time.
And now my friends I am asking for your help. What do these notes mean? Has my wife gone completely fruity? What has been making her so happy today?

The suspense was killing me. This afternoon I asked her.
“Hey wife,” I said.
“Hey husband,” she said.
“So the other day I glanced at your phone and it was like a bunch of fruits and stuff.”
“Lol yup. Were you able to sound them out?”
She laughed, “It would be very difficult, possible, but very difficult without the key.”
She pulled out her phone, tapped it a couple times, and shoved it into my hand.
I looked at it and saw another note with a bunch of fruit emojis.
After looking at it for a bit I asked, “So I kinda enlisted a crew of the world’s best code crackers to help me figure this out. Is it chill if I send them all a screenshot of this?”
“Of course, husband. Hopefully it makes everyone happy!”
Hopefully this will help us figure out what these fruit notes mean. But it raises a new question. Why does the wife use these emoji to represent whatever they represent?
