Lies mom

  1. I’m at Amy’s.
    And by “Amy” I mean the guy I’m having casual sex with two-four times a week. 
  2. I don’t know where your jacket went.
    I took it to school with me, got drunk, spilled red wine all over it and now it’s in a ball in the back of my closet because I really don’t want to deal with it. Sorry.
  3. I’m in class and my phone is on silent.
    I saw, silenced, and ignored your call. Also, what’s class?
  4. Yeah, I’m taking care of myself.
    If eating enough queso to kill a dog and drinking enough alcohol to make an overweight, 40-year-old man pass out is taking care of myself, then yes. I’m taking very good care of myself. 
  5. We’re not dating. He’s just a friend.
    A friend who makes my toes curl and my condom stash disappear rapidly. 
  6. No. Really. He’s just a friend.
    No. Really. He’s not just a friend.
  7. Can I use your credit card? It’s an emergency.
    Not realizing that the Semi-Annual sale was happening until it was already happening really is an emergency.
  8. Last night? Oh I just hung out. Fell asleep early. Nothing crazy.
    I was drunk by 5 p.m. Stayed out until 2 a.m. Cried in public. Ate an entire pizza. Threw up the entire pizza (plus most of the vodka I drank). Texted my FWB. Hooked up with my FWB. Fell asleep still wearing my shoes. Woke up with a hangover, no pants, and no dignity. So, the usual.
  9. That’s not mine.
    It’s totally mine.
  10. Dad said it was fine.
    I haven’t asked dad, but I 100 percent know that he would not think this is fine. 
  11. No, I didn’t see your comment on my Facebook.
    Yes mom. I get a notification when you comment on my stuff. The whole world can see that you not only “liked” the post, but left a paragraph asking me if the boy in the picture was my boyfriend. P.S. He’s not.
  12. Or grandma’s.
    I see everything.
  13. And I really have no idea how they got deleted.
  14. I don’t know what my high school ex is up to.
    He’s here for the summer, just broke up with his girlfriend, got fifty-seven likes on his most recent Instagram post, texted me twice, came over to my apartment once, made me come three times, and just tweeted at Kanye. I mean, yeah. IDK.
  15. Ew, I’ll never turn into you.
    I’ll be exactly (and I mean exactly) like you. 
  16. No, I can’t believe my best friend from middle school is pregnant, either.
    Yes I can. She was a total slut. And on that note I actually just took a pregnancy test, sooooo fingers crossed.
  17. I need money for food.
    Read: alcohol.
  18. You’re a bitch.
    I’m actually the bitch, and you were right about something.
  19. It won’t cost much, I just need a trim.
    I actually need a deep conditioning treatment, lowlights and highlights, a new cut, and an up-do. Oh, and a new wand. Just because.
  20. Yeah, I’m sure this outdated hand-me-down dress you got from The Limited seven years ago will look great on me. Thanks.
    How dare you put this curse, and hideous dress, on me. 
  21. It’s [insert sibling’s name here]’s fault.
    It’s all my fault.
  22. I’m fine, I don’t need help.
    Can I call you for two hours and cry about the guy who didn’t text me back please?
  23. You’re the best mom in the world.
    JK. That one’s the truth.
