Can we please go back to a form of communication that can at least convey tone of voice, if not non-verbals, without the use of emoticons? Please?

Oh, god, the socially anxious part of me really, really hates texting and that uniquely petrifying moment when you hit "send" and only then realize that the words you used to convey something might be completely misread without the context of non-verbals.

I'm going to go crawl under a rock now.
