I talk to my mom almost everyday, but that doesn’t mean that I’m always telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Seriously, are you always honest with your mom? No lying here! Take a look at the doublespeak we use when chatting with mama and tell me if this looks familiar…
Your Love Life
She said: Marc? He’s fine I guess. Whatever.
She meant: Rumor has it he’s been hooking up with Julie for a month, and if you ask ONE question about him prepare for three hours of tears and emotional eating.
She said: Mrs. McCall TOTALLY has it out for me this semester! It’s like nothing I do will get me an A.
She meant: Me not studying for the midterm and then ditching three Fridays in a row might have something to do with it…
Getting Your Way
She said: But Daddy told me it was fine to use the car on Saturday–I asked him yesterday!
She meant: He was on the phone and I murmured “heydaddycarkey?” and he gave me a vague wave. So basically, he agreed.
On the Phone
She said: Well I gotta go mom, I’m walking up to meet the girls!
She meant: My crush just entered the room and I’ll be damned if I miss the chance to flirt with him because you’re rambling about Aunt Helen’s back problems.
She said: Um, my period is like, super random and irregular. Do you think going on birth control will help?
She meant: My period is like clockwork, I’d just rather eat glass than tell you that my BF and I want to start having sex. I’m ready to be a woman!
She said: Mommmyyyyyy…can I have some money? I know you just gave me some but I spent that $50 on a new graphing calculator!
She meant: I was going to buy a TI-84 but then I saw the sickestpair of neon skinnies and realized that I can always borrow Mandy’s calculator but I couldn’t live life without those pants!
What was the last half-truth you told your mom? What do you think you should never say to mom (even if you’re thinking it)? Tell me in the comments!
