asshole in the first place

I get angry a lot

days

anyway.

her

I didn't tell her your name. just said a guy on FB I was
talking to.

we are, kinda. But I think to be friends you have to have met
in real life

Josh:
we have met in person, remember?

Mandy:
years ago

Josh:
so those 1,355 people on your FB are all people you've met in
real life?
