I dislike emojis 

I have grown to understand the value of : ) in a faceless conversation
But I detest emojis
[Particularly, emojis with props!]

I thought it’d look outdated to rely on semicolons to suggest a wink when I feel I need to handheld my reader (make sure I set the mood context right, so no one assumes a smirk when I try to be nice, a humph when I’m actually smiling)

But, after using [the #*•~<>+”] emojis for a couple of times I feel I hate them more than ever

So out with the emoji!!

In with good old facial punctuation to convey emotional accents

And, on with longer, better structured sentences & paragraphs so as not to need either
