Friends, Funny life, Just rambling

What does your Hi mean

The other day a friend pinged me and I replied with a ‘Hi’ without giving it a second thought.

His next line: What’s wrong with you?

Me: Huh? Nothing. Why?

He: Chal na. Tell me what happened.

Me: Arre! Why do you feel something’s wrong?

He: You said Hi. Nothing else. No emojis. Its weird. Even for you.

Me: Come on. That doesn’t mean anything.

He: Ok, fine. My phone isn’t charged. I’m logging off. Talk to you later.

Me: No wait. We have to talk.

He: *sarcastically* Oh, we do? What a surprise!

Then I proceeded to tell him what was on my mind. 

Although I loved the fact that he expertly understood the unspoken, I was amused that a mere greeting gave me away. 😬

Friends are the strangest and sweetest. Aren’t they? :):)

          1. Well then the question is how well do you know him? I am sure you catch every subtle sign of his too… Coz Friendship is a two way street you know.

          2. I would like to believe I get him as well. I catch every sign and especially the ones he’s hiding. It is a two-way street indeed. He has his and I have mine. We argue a lot but never miss waving at each other from our ends. ????????

  1. yes some people get the unspoken things very well..there was this canteen boy in my office and we have little chit chat every day i was upset but i tried to have normal talk but he told me sir something has happened to you today . I had to admire him for that later ☺☺

    1. Ah well. I didn’t start off to test him, honestly. I wasn’t sure if I should share the matter or was it too silly to bother anyone with. But yes, he passed the mock test with flying colours. ????

  2. I have a few friends like that who know when I am in a low mood. I think social media and emojis have also added to the dynamic, to be honest. What a snappy, entertaining read this was!

    1. I generally zone out when I don’t feel good, but people like this guy claw at me until I let it all out. Thank god for them! ????????
      I love using emojis a lot. Indeed, I use them with caution in social media, but like you said they add to the dynamics. Thanks for the comment Shailaja. ☺☺

        1. Haha…if you found the conversations in this post even remotely relatable to the ones in your post, you should probably stop trying to decipher their meaning. This was a real conversation. When friends talk they don’t usually dissect each other’s grammar or word usage.
