Monday mornings are hard. Not only are you cruising on a post-Scaries anxiety spiral, but your hair-of-the-dog hangover is just beginning and that stupid inbox of yours keeps pinging like an annoying friend on BBM.
And this makes communicating hard. Standard vocabulary recall is completely gone to the point where you’re left asking questions like, “What’s it called…when you’re putting food in your mouth, and then you move your mouth up and down in order to crush the food…” and your cube-mate has to offer up suggestions for the term you’re searching for. “Hula-hooping!” “Fire dancing!” “Mountain climbing!”
(In this case the answer was “eating” but I’m betting neither you nor said mate-o-cube got that. I had to ask Leandra, the answer was not hula-hooping.)
But luckily, where words fail, emojis prevail, and so we have taken to answering the Million Dollar Monday Question everybody asks – “What did you do this weekend?” –with a little game of iPhone Pictionary.
See if you can guess what Charlotte did based on her answer to Prince Harry, what Leandra did based off her response to Wesley Snipes, and what I did based off my text back to A$AP Rocky. Don’t cheat!
Charlotte: Friday I got a manicure, then I drove a zip car to the end of the earth in Queens, more specifically to a UPS warehouse to pick up a package (not unlike this Broad City episode). Then I drank and ate.
Saturday I road tripped to the airport to pick up my friend. I went back to Brooklyn to celebrate my one year anniversary of living with my roommate (woo friends!). We went to some art studios, drank free beer, ate tacos (the cactus was the closest Emoji i had available to Tex-Mex food), drank margaritas and danced ,then slept a lot.
Sunday I saw a documentary about a mysterious female photographer called “Finding Vivian Maier,” I highly recommend it!
Leandra: I ran, danced like a monkey, ate fruit, then shat, and then I waxed my own lip!
Amelia: Friday my dad picked me up, I spent the night at his place, and we ate a lot of food and then I fell asleep. Saturday I went riding and hung out with horses all day, then I ate a TON of Italian food for dinner, had half a drink, and fell asleep by 10. Sunday was back with the horses where I got a sunburn, and then I concluded my wild weekend by watching Game of Thrones.
