[Insert inadequate emoji here]

Having written the word shit too many times in a text message, I decided to ring the changes by defining my life as crap instead. Nothing could’ve defused a rubbish moment more quickly than my newly updated phone suggesting that I replace the word crap with what it deemed to be a relevant emoji:


I’m not sure that a cheerful pile of poo adequately captured how I was feeling but I nevertheless found myself smiling back at its pitifully optimistic eyes and gormless grin, pulling a wry grimace at this woeful reduction of my complex emotional state.


Maybe I should ditch the writing all together and stick to sad face doodles.

Whoop whoop.
