#anxiety #relatable #exclamation points are like smiling #(and indeed smiley-face emoticons fulfil the same function) #people say it’s about conveying happiness and excitement #and *sometimes* that’s true #but other times the point is to show off the *lack* of sharpness in your teeth #”please‚ I’m no threat to you‚ please show me some mercy”
