My favorite Emoji...? [Weekly]

Weekly Topic: My favorite GIF / emoji

Jan 9, 2020

This is my favorite emoji.  

In the main picture. Can you see it?

What does this emoji mean to you? What is this expression? Think about it.

To me, this emoji is a grimace.  Can you make a grimace with your face? Try it!
It looks like a fake smile.

You use this face when:
  • you see something painful
  • you see something awkward
  • you are nervous
  • you aren't sure
Here is an example of using the emoji in a sentence:

My boss crashed his car today. I saw him using his cell phone before the crash... 

It is difficult to express a grimace using words. A picture helps the reader understand the writer's feelings. 

Emoji are fun! Written communication can be more interesting with pictures. I use it with Skype and text messages on my phone. I use other emoji too, but sometimes the grimace emoji is perfect!

Did something bad happen to you?

Do you grimace in your day-to-day life? Do you use the grimace emoji?
What is your favorite emoji?
