Adam: Did you know that Hyenas roam the streets of Addis Ababa the way dogs roam our impoverished neighborhoods? Can you imagine being in a situation where you are walking down a street of your city at night and a pack of rabid Hyenas goes screaming past you?
Eve: Hmm, I am never going to that place.
Adam: You should really make time to listen to BBC’s From Our Own Correspondents podcast. It’s amazing.
Eve: My boyfriend sucks. I asked him for a new handbag, and he said he couldn’t. Could you get me a new handbag? We could go shopping together!
A: Hey, wassup?
E: Just looking at some of the photos from the Ukraine protests. They’re so beautiful.
A: I didn’t know you were into geopolitics. Am a big fan of geopolitics.
E: Oh, a friend sent me the link.
A: The Western media likes to make a big fuss to further the geo-strategic cause of their nations. Like in the Syrian crisis, the number of displaced is 2.5 mn. It sounds like a lot but when you compare to the 100mn Chinese who were displaced as a result of the Japanese invasion during the WWII, it doesn’t seem like a lot, does it?
A: I am not saying I am more perceptive than the Western media but sometimes I get the feeling that I am more wedded to truth and neutrality than they are.
E: What are you doing up so late? :O
A: Waiting for the game to start. These daylight savings are ruining my beauty sleep, I must say.
E: Daylight what? Can’t you find anything more worthwhile than staying up to watch soccer?
A: Like chatting with a boyfriend?
E: You don’t know how to talk to a lady. Take some tips from your little brother.
A: And it’s not soccer, it’s FOOTBALL!
A: Hey there, want to go see a movie this week? You might not like it but it’s going to be really good.
E: Who’s in it?
A: That’s immaterial. Fincher directed it.
A: Yeah, Fight Club.
E: Yuck! I’d rather go see Our Faults in the Stars.
A: Seriously? That movie’s got an 8% rating on the tomatometer.
E: I don’t care what this tomamameter is. I just loved the book.
A: Are you kidding me? That book’s downright terrible.
A: Oh lord, When will these masses learn to respect their entertainment and come to appreciate true quality?
E: It’s just entertainment dude. Chill the fuck down.
A: I take it you are the type of person who texts during a movie?
E: Yeah, I have to let my friends know about how boring the Fincher movie is.
A: You are a piece of trash, you know that?
E: Bye darling. You are not worthy of my time.
E: Aww, I just got gifted this cute new puppy for my birthday.
A: Happy Birthday!
E: You didn’t wish me since morning?!
A: That’s right. I don’t get this celebrating birthdays fad.
E: How’s being miserable coming along?
A: It’s so darn wonderful. You should try it sometime.
E: I am really enjoying this conversation.
A: The person who gifted you that puppy, all they want is for you to feel miserable 12 years down the line. Think of it as a down payment.
E: I am going to go bang my head against a wall. Brb.
