I know some people don’t like using emoticons, but I don’t just use them as like cute little additions to text I use them as a substitute for facial expressions in conversation. So unless you use a :P or a ;) occasionally I have no idea whether you’re kidding or being sarcastic or not and if you never throw down a :) or a :( once in a while then I don’t know how you’re feeling about whatever you’re talking about

and basically if we have an entire conversation in which you don’t use any emoticons at all I just mentally imagine you standing there talking you me in a monotone with a completely blank face and I get kind of creeped out
