But how are you supposed to virtually express an emotion, when your real-life face is frozen in a perpetual state of, "Surprise!" or, "I'm possessed by the devil, just look at my eyebrows, they're halfway up my forehead because I've just had Botox. "
Why don't Botox-emoticons exist, folks? Well, they should.
How else are you supposed to let your Facebook friends know that you, "Went to the dermatologist today for my monthly nerve-paralytic to erase the hands of time, and now I'm --[insert Botox-emoji] Looking ten years younger (which enhances my normal Resting B**** Face), or --[insert Botox-Emoji] Feeling awesome (but look crazier than Joker from the Blockbuster movie 'Batman').
Please note: Not all doctors make Botox patients look like insane asylum escapees, but some do. And I am neither for, or against, the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes. But if you choose to go under the needle, beware.
In an effort to appear younger, you might be unwittingly freezing your face 'into the form of' a freakish, real-life emoticon, or get stuck in the Botox Face-Time Continuum with these folks.
Let me introduce you, to Crazy One Eye Up, One Eye Down Woman. If you ever run into her while shopping at an upscale store, you will want to look away. Her Botox went horribly wrong, because she had someone other than a physician inject her near her eyes. This once, naturally beautiful woman only had one weakness -- she didn't have the power to say, "No!"
Haven't been introduced to Plastic Face Guy? Let's hope you never meet in a bar.
His high powered job, where he was competing for a promotion and needed to look years younger, forced him to take the art of Botox-injecting into his own hands. His incredibly good looks morphed into a 'frozen face' -- after he went overboard with it. Now, his face resembles a Madame Tussauds Michael Jackson wax-figure -- after the plastic surgery.
Botox-emoticons are a great idea, don't you think? So, let's get together and tell the social media powers-that-be at Facebook to jump on the frozen-face bandwagon, and include their wrinkle-averse members! And when they ask you why you look so British and constipated, tell them you currently only run the emotional gamut from A---to Botox.
