(“Bestie” is lying on the couch in my room with MY phone in her hand. I have not seen my phone for the last four hours. She has just been sexting texting for that whole time. Luckily, I have unlimited texting 😉 Remember to imagine Bestie with a posh British accent )
Me: Who are you talking to?
Bestie: (No response–she is absorbed in responding to the text)
Me: Have you been texting the same person for the last few hours?
Bestie: (Sly smile) Perhaps
Authors note: Americans are suckers for the British accent. We had grown men falling allover themselves once they heard her accent in the club
Me: You’ve only been in the US for three days and you’re already boo-loving?
Me: You heard me!
Bestie: What did you say?
Me: I didn’t stutter!
Bestie: Repeat what you said! (she is getting visibly frustrated. she drops my phone).
Me: Um…(pause) who are you talking to?
Bestie: No, the boo thing you said.
Bestie: Yah (she slows down to enunciate the whole word) boooo-laaavvvvin
Me: (laughs) Wow, if you pronounce it like that, you won’t be doing it anymore.
Bestie: What does it mean?
Me: Like it sounds…loving your boo. When you are talking to someone…
Bestie: That’s the lamest thing I’ve ever heard. Boo-loving (she laughs)
(she winks at me)
Besties: And to answer your question: perhaps I am.
