Get out your rainbow of glitter gel pens and take some aspirin for that pesky carpal tunnel syndrom because…it’s yearbook signin’ time! But is what you write always what you mean? HAHAHAH no. Good heavens no. So here’s what to write in a yearbook when you have no idea what to say. Or even when you know EXACTLY what you want to say, but kind of just know better.
Your Exchange Student Chem Partner
She said: Hey Byron, Soooo glad u were there 2 get me thru Mrs. T’s labs and 4 letting me copy. Owe ya one!
She meant: If I never have to hear you tell me, in detail, about the Liverpool soccer team, it’ll be too soon.
She said: Umm how can I even begin to sum up our adventures?
She meant: I can’t. Five thousand pages couldn’t hold all the words to tell you how rad you are—so I won’t even try!
She said: Jace-y Wastey! Thanx 4 making me laugh thru calc. Remember when Mr. Dodds accidentally said “Osama” instead of “Obama”? LOLZZZ! (Of course this comes with a needlessly elaborate stick figure drawing of the incident) (and your phone number) (written once then crossed out and re-written so it’s EXTRA clear)
She meant: I know where you live and I fully plan on doing drive-bys all summer and have already memorized your soccer practice schedule.
That Weird Girl Who Your One Friend Hangs Out With
She said: Darcy, I’ll never forget all of ur awesome outfits—you’re so brave! Can’t wait to see what crazy stuff you come up with next year. Watch out, Lady Gaga–ur totes gonna steal her thunder one day!
She meant: Yeah but until you do, please leave me alone. I’m awkward and unpopular enough as it is without a girl wearing a pair of paper mache fairy wings trailing behind me.
The Frenemy You Hate
She said: Skylar, ha ha soooo hilarious to remind everyone about that time first semester that I walked around all day with a period stain on my white jeans ha ha! Can’t wait for summer at the beach—let’s hope no swimsuit mishaps happen
She meant: Game on, bitch. There will come a day when your tampon string will wander outside your bikini bottoms. And when it does…I’ll be there.
Your AP English Teacher
She said: Mrs Sorey—thanks for teaching me the right way to pronounce “scone” and “Celtic”! I’m sooooo much smarter and can totes pass for Pippa Middleton now
She meant: PLEASE WRITE ME A GOOD COLLEGE REC LETTER! PLEASE!
