Disclaimer: Please forgive me ahead of time for this post, some things are exaggerated and just meant to be funny!
I will be the first to admit that I have been guilty of using an emoji or two from time-to-time. 😊🤣, being my two most used ones. But OMG, aren’t they like so annoying! I was a little happy when I saw this question last night because I ‘ve been having a 🔥itch to scratch on this topic. You ask which emojis are my favorite? My response is simply😒. I guess it’s a generational thing, but damn it seems like the younger generation, primarily on social media, does not use words anymore. Some of us older folks are not totally innocent either and it’s not cute.
It just 🤯how we can now write a whole darn sentence without any letters or words! Call me old school but I miss the good ole days when we wrote letters and commented on our feelings with actual words. We drafted paragraphs and used adjectives such as love, happy, sad and angry and added a few more words to express exactly how we felt.
If we were lucky enough to have the opportunity to be writing a ❤️letter, we wrote a whole darn page and ended it with XOXO and sealed it with our own lip sticked lips. Today, emoticons have replaced words and emotions, and a one paged love letter would probably be reduced to one line and look like this.
I ❤️u2. 🤷🏾♀️ when I’ll 👀 u again. 😘 until then. 💋👋🏾.
Got that? If for some strange reason there is somebody reading this who does not have a clue as to what I’m talking about, or does not agree, don’t take my word for it. Just go to an Instagram post and check out the comments, everybody’s on 🔥🔥.
