PENKALA       12:03PM

Blithe probably won't say much either or anything at all

 

WINTERS       12:03PM

This was all Lew’s idea. Direct all negative comments to the brain of this group.

 

BUCK       12:04PM

If Webster were here, he’d feel insulted, I’m sure.

 

MALARKEY       12:04PM

maybe that’s why he said it.

 

SKIP       12:04PM

SKIP        12:52PM

MALARKEY        12:53PM

WINTERS        12:58PM

WINTERS        12:59PM

I gave him their 5th period.

 

WINTERS        12:59PM

NIX        1:00PM

Dick’s idea, of course.

 

MORE        1:01PM

MORE        1:01PM

LIEBGOTT        1:02PM

we are corrupting the innocent Richard Winters and it’s a sight to behold.

 

NIX        1:02PM

hey if we can get to the subject of why I brought you guys into this chat that would be gr8

 

LUZ        1:03PM

RIP Gene’s phone tho honestly it’s gonna die

  

NIX        1:05PM

basically it’s just easier to talk like this outside of class and school and not having to wait for texts between everyone and then we gotta wait on someone to get a text from another person so we can relay it back

 

NIX        1:05PM

quite frankly that is too much work and I am all about lessening work

 

BUCK        1:06PM

You didn’t have to tell us that.

 

BUCK        1:06PM

Because we know.

 

NIX        1:06PM

#rude

 

NIX        1:07PM

HOOB        1:07PM

NIX        1:08PM

#doublerude

 

WINTERS        1:08PM

They’re right, Lew.

 

NIX        1:08PM

NIX        1:09PM

BULL        1:12PM

I’ll come in

 

NIX        1:13PM

nice of you to join us finally

 

BULL        1:15PM

I was trying to clean brushes off and that can take a while because no one does it properly so it gets the brushes clumpy and stiff and it's annoying and I don't want to keep buying new paint brushes

 

BULL        1:15PM

but yeah I’ll come in

 

BUCK        1:15PM

I’ll join.

 

LUZ        1:16PM

WINTERS        1:18PM

MALARKEY        1:19PM

MORE        1:19PM

MORE        1:20PM

LIEBGOTT        1:20PM

PERCO        1:31PM

PERCO        1:32PM

I thought we were friends

 

MALARKEY        1:32PM

we are.


MALARKEY       1:33PM

but I tease you because you’re my friend and it shows I care because I’m bad at expressing myself in other ways

 

SKIP        1:33PM

wow I had no idea that’s why you send depression memes

 

MALARKEY        1:34PM

IT’S CALLED I’M TOO EMPATHETIC

 

PENKALA        1:34PM

[HOOB changed “The Godfather, Part IV” to “Relatable Memes ™”]        1:35PM

 

WINTERS        1:35PM

NIX        1:37PM

WINTERS        1:37PM

I have been in the past.

 

NIX        1:38PM

I must have been drunk or asleep when that happened

 

NIX        1:38PM

maybe both?

 

WINTERS        1:39PM

Get back to class, everyone. Stop texting and pay attention.

 

[NIX changed “Go to Class” to “Winters Is Our Dad”]        1:41PM

 

WINTERS        1:41PM
