I just realized an online equivalent to the experience we’ve all had at one point or another when someone is waving in your direction at somebody behind you but you don’t know there’s someone behind you and you think they’re waving at you, and you look at them for a minute thinking “who are you?” in a very awe-filled, childlike internal voice and then idiotically decide to wave back and smile excitedly like you’ve just made a new friend.

(The aftermath of this is always humiliating. You wanna play it off like it was no big deal, yet there’s a part of you that feels just a teeny tiny bit hurt that you didn’t actually find a random new best friend and that they chose someone else, so, to try and show how not-a-big-deal it was you say something about it really loudly like “Ha, I totally thought you were waving at…” but then your voice trails off when you realize they aren’t even acknowledging you because you are so awkward, and now you look schizophrenic.)

It is this:

This conversation only looks vaguely like an actual Facebook conversation because I totally made it up and have no art skills whatsoever. Please don’t mock me. Also, I’m available to create your wedding invitations and/or graduation announcements if desired. Call me! *does phone sign with hand* <—-(also awkward)
