E. L. James, best-selling author of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, tweeted a sad face today. This would not be alarming had she not tweeted a happy face just 23 hours earlier.

Though James is known for writing about BDSM relationships, she has managed—in just two tweets!—to tell a more universal tale of what it means to be a human being on this planet.

From :) to :( in a single day. Stars are just like us!
