That’s Her Story And She’s Sticking To It

| Friendly | April 11, 2014

(My boyfriend used to share an apartment with my best friend and her boyfriend. My best friend would Skype her mother at least once a week, with her laptop screen facing towards the wall behind her. Her mother would often ask who was making noises in the background.)

Friend’s Mother: “What’s that noise?!”

Friend: “Oh that’s [Friend #2]. He just got home.”

(Another noise.)

Friend’s Mother: “What’s going on over there?”

Friend: “That’s [Boyfriend]. HEY, [Boyfriend]! SHUT UP, YA BUTT!”

Boyfriend: “NEVER!”

(Since her mom has never met me or my boyfriend, she apparently refused to believe he was real. One day my friend came up with a solution.)

Friend: “Hey, mom! Meet [Boyfriend]!”

(She holds up a little stick figure with a photo of my boyfriend’s face taped over the head.)

Friend: *moving stickman* “Wah wah wah, I’m [Boyfriend]!”

(Her mom cracked up laughing. That stickman is still around, and gets a change of outfit every holiday…)
