I was reading some of my old private message with my friend on FB. She and I have over about 2,000 messages going back and forth. just out of boredom, i decided to re-read what i’ve been sending back to her.
i came across this one message where i was telling her about this family friend and how boastful she is about her child.
sometimes i dislike how people tend to boast about things. like certain things are okay, i guess, like saying: “oh i got into this” or “i got that”, or even “i won this”.
those are okay. like, those are something to be proud and yes they are great to tell everyone.
but being boastful every time you see someone just like…what? why?
this family friend of ours just loves to boast about her child. yes, i understand some or maybe all parents love to boast about their kids, but this lady loves to talk about her daughter and how great she is. that is wonderful. heck, i was even like: thats great!
but every time we see her at the grocery store, since she works there, she never hesitates to boast about her kid, especially when i am there.
she would like: “oh, noirette, you know, my daughter is so smart and she is only 10!”
im just standing there like:
then she would be go on saying how her daughter is only 10, doing geometry and physics getting good grades.
again, im like:
then after, she would be saying “yeah…she is already in 7th grade because she is so smart [either 7th or 8th]. so she will be graduating early!”
at this point im still like: ‘thats is so great!’ i mean seriously, what else do you want me to say? lol
the family friend then said her daughter has a 4.1 GPA. not a 4.0, but a 4.1. she really made it clear to me. still, im just like:
seriously, what else do you want me to say? i already said that your daughter is great. to me it felt like she wanted to make me jealous or something. but really? i dont give a fuck.
her daughter was 10…i was 19 at the time she told me. we went to different schools. she went to a public school, i went to private. the academics were probably different when i was her age.
now get this…this is probably the most interesting one out of the bunch. she told me that her daughter is a size 7 in shoes.
what the fuck…seriously, you want to tell me what her shoe size is…like for real. you want me to buy her shoes? fuck no man! that information was just like…whhhaaaat?
see….even Key says that no one cares.
everytime she is there, she would always tell us something to make her family look good. she told my mom that her sister earns $60 / hour and she bought her a fryer that was $600.
what am I going to do with that information? spread it around? to who? lol
being boastful is something that we can’t avoid or maybe we can. heck, i admit i boast at some things. but really, if you want to boast just so you can get me jealous…
‘Cuz I Don’t Care eh eh eh eh eh.
man, the things she tells me is funny. = U = people sometimes you know?
