Editorial – Communication

M: OMG are you there?! I did something reaaally embarrassing last night

S: Hey! Lol, where did you wake up?

M: No! I just looked at my sent messages from last night…

S: Lolll. Shit.

M: Yeah. “Cum meet me I have a surpise ;)”

S: Aaahaha, seductive! Did he ‘come’ back at you with anything good?

M: No… He didn’t answer, so I said: “I meant to spell CUM that way!”

S:

M: Don’t ‘…’ me!

S: Sorry! Just… Wow!

      [Seen 11.23am]
S: So… What are you going to do?

M: Urgh, I dunno. *Molly buries head in hands and vows never to leave house again.* Probably just ignore him every time I see him, stay offline on Facebook, and hope that something went wrong with his phone so he never gets the messages?

S: You should probs talk to him, so it’s not awkward at the next tute?

M: Hmm…

S: How many times have you already checked your phone this morning to see if he’s replied?

M: I’ve hidden it in the corner of my room. You can have it if you want—I know you’ve always wanted an android…

S: OMG! !!!! He just favourited my tweet about being really hungover !!! !!!

M: ! Good sign! You can probs get away with not talking about it now?

S: Sweeet, sweeet. Have you spoken to that douchebag about last weekend yet?

M: Not exactly… We’re gonna have coffee this week to “clear the air”. I fucking hate talking about this stuff. Wish he would just fav a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ tweet or something to minimise potential embarrassment haha

M: Yeah… I guess it’s best to do this in person though, eh. I mean, a favourited tweet? How ambiguous is that? *Molly puts on wise hat* I think we both just need to suck it up.

S: Yeah, I guess you’re right. We didn’t develop mouths for nothing! Well, apart from what you were after last night ;) (lolol)
