the bitter tea

Even though you know some tea, you aren’t automatically pressed to spill ALL of it. Today’s tea features our roommate Sophie and two grody flavors of betrayal. BTW, I’m being magnanimous by changing the names and not doxxing the creeps. To set our stage, a doe (we’ll call her Britney) high-school friend of Sophie’s is a Yale freshie this year. They were buddy-hollys back in the day and they’ve been clinging since their reunion. On another track, Sophie’s been talking to a guy (we’ll call him Cory) in her English class recently and it was clear they were “in-like” but their clocked-up schedules were corking their algorithms. Sophie and Cory finally got a shot together last weekend and attended a party together. However, it turns out later, at that party, Britney snuck off with Cory and smashed him (they were observed, and everyone carries a camera these days). So, poor Sophie suffered two betrayals in one night. Cory went-hiking on her and Britney - who she'd told about Cory - did the other woman chisel. Of course, Cory (just another dog-boy) is already forgotten but the broken friendship drama will live on forever. Why Britney chose to betray Sophie we’ll never know, because that skank is dead to us. . . BLT Marriam Webster: Magnanimous: “showing a kind and generous nature.” Slang… grody = disgusting and gross doxxing = publishing identifying information doe = female buddy-hollys = nerdy friends clinging = hanging out obsessively and sharing secrets clocked-up = busy corking = blocking wants algorithm = alignment, groove smashed = pretty well-established synonym, you know. went-hiking = cheated on chisel = cheat

Worth the read. You’ve laid this out well. Things done in a moment can remain forever. Very sad.

Sophie will be alright - she can take a bump out two. Aloha Rico!
