Phrase 12-A penny for your thoughts.
A dollar if you flash me!
“Penny for your thoughts?” I asked, taking a seat next to Jasper. It wasn’t hard to tell when he was upset, especially if you knew what to look for. He currently had his ‘Forlorn Love’ face on and kept sighing every few seconds. Oh, this was going to be fun.
“Nothing.” He said, with that mopey look on his face.
I rolled my eyes. “Dude, I know you too well for it to be nothing. Now, I am going to have to ask Chatty Cathy,’ I jerked my thumb over to the local school gossip, Cathy, ‘Or are you going to tell me what has your underwear in a bunch?”
“Well, you see I was going to ask this girl out…” He said.
“UGH!” I groaned, knowing I have to listen to one of his straight boy tales again.
“You’re the one who wanted to know what was wrong!” He replied defensively.
“Doesn’t mean I have to be excited. Continue.” I said, motioning for him to continue.
“Anyway, I was going to ask her out and I found out that she is dating someone else. What am I going to do?” He asked.
“Be happy for her?” I said.
“But I mean I like her. How could she do this to me?”
“Listen up, Captain Dudebro. She wasn’t yours in the first place. Who she dates and doesn’t date isn’t your decision. In my opinion, she got lucky that she doesn’t have to deal with your dumbass.”
“How can you say that? You are supposed to be my friend!”
“I am and one of my duties as a friend is to make sure that you don’t become a fedora wearing Dudebro that complains all the time about how ladies don’t like him when everyone knows he is a dick.”
“You’re welcome. Happy to serve. ”
