Op-Ed: That’s Cool, But Did I Ask?

Omg bestie that’s like totally exciting and I’m like super happy for you... but tbh it’s kinda tmi and I don’t remember asking?

NO omg don’t apologize haha, it’s totally okay and so cool that you decided to share that with us at this particular moment. It’s just that—like not to be mean or anything—I just don’t really think it was relevant to our conversation, you know?

Like I know you thought it was important and I would never want to take that from you or anything, but hearing about your dying uncle really took my vibe down a peg just now, so let’s keep it to ourselves next time, okay babe? Thanks <3
