Do you think that little blue thing satisfactorily expresses the sentiment?
Certainty disturbs me

I always associate blue emojis with sad stuff. There is disonance . . .

If it is truly enough for you I will raise no further objections.
Even though it is rubbish. :woohoo!:

Could that be because in the English language one can 'feel blue'? In Portuguese, we do not suffer from such hues. :lol:

:notsure: Okay...I want to ask why you think it's rubbish but I'm afraid the answer would be world-shattering.  :-X

So you can't sing the bluese in Portuguese?

Can you Portuguese speakers go white with fear or anger? Green with envy?  Yellow in cowardice? Into a black rage? Pink or red with embarrassment? Or even transparent if totally ingenuous?

Nope, blue is not associated with sadness as far as I know. But it's likely it'll be an imported and incorporated expression in the future. For now, it's the colour you get when you're starving ("blue from hunger").

White with fear or anger, yes.

Quote
Green with envy?

This is believed to have originated with Shakespeare himself. It's not very common, but because his works are read here, the expression has been incorporated. Some people say it.

Quote
Yellow in cowardice?

Yes, 'to go yellow' (amarelar) means to, well, go yellow. :grin:

Quote
Into a black rage?


Never heard an equivalent before. :notsure: There is a popular expression with black in it, but it's used to mean something has gone wrong or has become complicated.

Quote
Pink or red with embarrassment?

Purple.

Quote
Or even transparent if totally ingenuous?

Not really, someone who isn't hiding anything is transparent.
