me: i’m glad you love your new bff.

me: that you were…
boy: come on, don’t be silly…
boy: aaaaand you went there anyway.
me: [so pleased with myself, beaming from my wit and charm]
boy: [shaking head, wordless, contemplating how possible it might be for him to break up with me and date a mime instead]
me: are you going to tell him how we talk about him?
