I'm going to be honest with you guys - sometimes, I don't feel like texting real, legit words. Sometimes, I just want to send you an eggplant emoji and be on my merry way.
I know, I know, it's vapid and a sign of our growing dependence on technology. I know. But it's how I am. I can't help it.
My only gripe with that emoji life, though, is that there aren't any emojis that express our unique experiences as Montrealers.
Until now, that is.
Recently, it was brought to my attention that a Montreal emoji app has come out, appropriately named Montreal Emoji.
It's got legit every single Montreal emoji you could ever want. Bagels, orange cones, poutines - and yes, even pot holes.
The app costs $0.99 and installs super easily (if you have iOS 10, once it's done installing it uploads automatically to the "Application" section of your iMessages, where the gifs usually are).
Personally, I think this is amazing. And yes, I did buy it, and I am annoying every single one of my friends sending them orange cone after orange cone.
Sorry not sorry, friends.
