BFF 1: It wasn’t just me, my dad saw the UFO too. It was there, hovering, and then it just took off. *Dramatic hand gestures.*

BFF 2: I know, I’ve watched videos like that on YouTube. What do you think they want from us?

BFF1: I don’t know, but what if they listen to us for their studies? *Whispering* Maybe we shouldn’t talk out loud about it.

BFF2: Text Message to BFF1: They’re probably using Earth as a farm and we’re just of no value to them, yet. Or maybe they’re not real.

BFF1:Text Reply: Yeah, they’re probably not real.


BFF1: You know when you can just feel a presence? You just know?

BFF2: Yes, you just feel like someones watching you and it’s cold. Just like in movies.

*Both scan room, circumspect*

BFF1: But yano, there’s no proof. It could just be in our heads.

BFF2: Yeah if ghosts were real, they would be literally everywhere.

Body Dysmorphia

BFF1: I miss my body from high school but I don’t want to starve to get back to it.

BFF2: You don’t need to starve, your body is so much better now. You’re a woman, you have sick curves.

BFF1: No you do. I’d die for your body.

BFF2: No, I’d die for yours! *Ass slap*

Translation and rationalization of unsatisfactory text messages

BFF1: Incoming Text: “I’m pretty tired so I think I’m gonna crash. Maybe another nite?”
That means he’s with another girl tonight, right? OR I was just really weird last time.

BFF2: No maybe that means he’s just tired.

BFF1: How much energy do you need to sleep with someone?

BFF2: He probably got back together with his ex-girlfriend. It’s not you.

BFF1: He’s definitely just tired, he’ll text you tomorrow, for sure.

BFF2: You’re right.

That ex-boyfriend you swore you were over

BFF!: I’m over him, I hate him he sucks and I’m so glad he left me because I would never had the courage to leave him. *Cries*

BFF2: You’re so much better with out him. You deserve so much more. *Hugs*

BFF1: But we were really good together… I really did love him…

BFF2: Well his new girlfriend is fugly and orange, maybe he’ll come to his senses and come crawling back.

BFF1: Hope so.

That ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend and how gross she seems online

BFF1: Seriously, she’s heinous.

BFF2: They called her the herpe-ninja in college.

BFF1: I heard that too. Whatever, I’m happy he has someone.

BFF2: Yeah, they deserve each other.

BFF1: But seriously, she hashtags every word in her captions. What kind of followers is she trying to get with “#the” ? Moron.


BFF1: I realized today, yoga is the art of holding in a fart.

BFF2: I’ve been really gassy too lately, I farted the whole way home. Literally: toot, toot, toot, from the subway to the front door like the little engine who could… do nothing but fart.

BFF1: Let’s stop eating dairy.

BFF2: I’m throwing away all of my cheese.

BFF1: No you’re not.

BFF2: No I’m not,

Road trips

BFF1: First let’s fly to LA, then let’s rent a car and drive up the coast.

BFF2: Yes lets go all the way to Washington!

BFF1: Why Washington?

BFF2: Forks…..What? It’s really pretty.

BFF 1: You’re right, I want to go to that bookstore in Port Angeles.

How our parents fucked us up

BFF1: My dad’s just really miserable and it really effects me.

BFF2: My dad has really bad anger problems and I feel that anger rise up in me sometimes. It’s scary.

BFF1: You’re nothing like your father.

BFF2: Neither are you. *Hugs*

BFF1: I love my dad.

BFF2: I love my dad, too,

Government conspiracy theories

BFF1: They can’t just make a documentary that’s entirely fake. There has to be some truth to Zeitgeist.

BFF2: My brother said that conspiracy theories are for people who are too lazy to read the real news.

BFF1: Yeah. But maybe Obama is a reptilian. How do we know, you know?

BFF2: Yeah, I guess it would be hard to know for sure.

Failure to be normal

BFF1: I got caught taking a selfie on the train but the worst part is I was really just doing a booger-check.

BFF2: I was listening to the Rent soundtrack today at work until the guy who sits next to me told me that my headphones weren’t plugged it. I was already at “Goodbye Love”.

BFF1: *Looks up nose with phone camera* Shit I really do have a booger.

BFF2: *Looks* Yeah it looks like a Christmas tree with ornaments up there.


BFF1: You would know if you had one, right?

BFF2: Yeah I think if it feels fine and it smells fine, you’re fine.

BFF1: He didn’t look like he had anything. He had comic books on his nightstand.

BFF2: You’re fine.

BFF1: I should get tested.

BFF2: You really should.

Best Friends

BFF1: You’re my best friend in the whole world.

BFF2: You’re the only person who gets me.

BFF1: We’re really more like sisters.

BFF2: Twins. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
