In the dark corner of my mind is the need to be more expressive. More than mere words can convey. I need emotion, sarcasm, humour and the general ability to more clearly express ideas and intent using the English language, with its multiple meanings. A picture says a thousand words, a emoji has to be worth quite a few. Their absence may have passed into the long assimilated injustices of the world, but no more. What happened with all the emojis? Did they go on strike? Got taken out back for a lesson? Been placed in witness protection? In a re-education camp? Did they demand more electrons? Is it a conspiracy of the FAA, green groups and a secret cabal of garden Gnomes? Have they been used as test subjects for bird ingestion in Jet engines? We need to have proof of life for our brave comrades and seek their speedy return.
