I live in an apartment with two other girls, Thu and Erika. Erika is a friend who I have known since middle school, and Thu is her roommate that came with the apt.
For well over a week, I had been eyeing a box of [increasingly wrinkly but still good] blueberries that had been sitting in our fridge that seemingly no one was eating.
Normally I wouldn’t bring it up, but I had already been talking about the fridge in our group chat, because we are getting a replacement this week.*
Me: Hi is anyone available to transfer food when the refrigerator arrives tomorrow? If not I’ll ask them to do it on Thursday morning when I can be there
Erika: I can’t be there but none of the food is mine anyway heh heh
Me: Ok no problem! Btw whose blueberries are in the fridge they look good still but have been there a while (I always text in long, run-on sentences)
Thu: I work so I can’t be there tomorrow
Thu: Blueberries aren’t mine, wish they were though HAHA**
Me: Lmao wait so are they mine??? HAHAHAHA** omg oops
At this point I’m like wtf I kinda thought they were Erika’s, but cool – I guess they are mine. I mean that is soo seriously unlike me to buy fruit, especially berries, and forget about them, but I am happy to eat them so wahoo! And to be fair, I have been going out of town a lot so that can be sort of discombobulating. Also, I found an omelette on Sunday from a week ago that I had completely forgotten about, so it is possible.
So later I am washing the blueberries and I have plated them (bowled? ::shrug::) and I am getting ready to eat them, when in walk Erika and her boyfriend Noah. We (Erika and I – not Noah because is a boor) are laughing and joking about the blueberries … and then … Noah exclaims, Erika these are our blueberries! And she’s like what I thought we brought them back to your place and then he was like no I put them there!
Erika, irl: 😅***
Me, if I were texting myself: xD
In my head I’m like yeeees I knew it! In conclusion, everything is great. I am right and they even let me eat the wrinkly-ass still tasty blueberries. V^_^V
*for the past couple of weeks, our fridge has been emitting noises that evoke the feeling that it is liable to explode. Thankfully it hasn’t exploded, but my ice cream is in a strange and unappetizing physical limbo where it is no longer solid but not yet a liquid.
**too lazy to insert the emojis so I used HAHAs instead
***no idea how to textually represent this
