Saying One Thing Means A Mother

| Romantic | January 30, 2012

(My boyfriend and I are at a ski resort, and are having a little bit of an altercation. It is mostly joking, but serious enough that his best friend can tell I’m actually getting upset.)

Boyfriend: “Why is everybody freaking out? Everybody needs to stop freaking out!”

Me: “Why do you say ‘everybody’ when you just mean me? After all, I’m the only one freaking out.”

Best friend: *trying to comfort me* “You’re his everything. He just means that you’re everyone that matters to him. So when he says everybody, he just means you.”

Boyfriend: “Well, sometimes ‘everybody’ means my mom.”
