Emotions run high during graduation week, and sometimes what we say isn’t always what we mean. Do any of these little white lies sound familiar? Please note: I actually did the last one. You might not want to copy my idea!
To the girl who got into the college that rejected you because she cheated on her SATs:
She said: Aww have SO much fun this fall at Stanford! And seriously I’m sure that stat about 2/3 of the people there having herpes is WAY exaggerated.
She meant: I made that stat up, but I’m sure once you get there it’ll become true. NOT THAT I’M BITTER.
To your junior class boyfriend:
She said: Babe, I’m only going to be four hours away at State. We are totes staying together.
She meant: I will call you when I’m upset or grouchy and we’ll def still hook up over break, but other than that, I’m going to work on snagging the next Tim Tebow!
To your BFF:
She said: Hey, this summer before we both leave, let’s do all those cheesy things around town we make fun of tourists for doing!
She meant: Let’s be honest, we’ll be sacked out on the couch watching the Kardashians and eating sour candy with the AC on full blast. Just like we do every summer.
To your parents:
She said: Oh. I see that Julie McClures parents got her one of those orchid leis. But no no, I love carnations.
She meant: You don’t love me, you never wanted a daughter and now you’ve ruined my graduation and possibly my life.
To your principal before she calls your name:
She said: Um yes, my middle name really is Moe. Shallon Moe Lester. I’m offended that you’d even question my integrity during commencement.
She meant: Mom, Dad, this is for not getting me that orchid lei! I’m so mature!
