Have you ever been out and about, or even just sitting at home, and received a random message from a friend? It is great to know they are thinking of you, but sometimes you realize that they might just be a little out of it. Unlike talking on the phone, you don’t have to be very coherent to text. But it helps to be funny, because, with the advent of screenshots, these conversations are preserved for all time. Here are 10 signs that you weren’t invited to the smoke sesh, and your friend is texting you while high.
1. Ahh the good old days
If your friend starts to try and recount the adventures of days gone by, but can’t seem to remember why they were so great, it might be THC talking.
2. Independent film award fails
If your friend suddenly starts filming random bits of juvenile humor, leaves blowing in the wind, or things that are only funny because of the hysterical laughter in the background, it might be the THC talking.
3. A serious take on the less than profound
If a friend sends you a random message that sounds like the opening line of a less than profound documentary into an obscure pop culture reference, or a badly selected thesis paper, it might be the THC talking.
4. Autocorrect just gives up
Technology might be wonderful, but some things are beyond repair. If the sentences have no sense, and the spelling is beyond foreign languages, it might be the THC talking.
5. Everything is a conspiracy
With all of the hilarious (and disturbing) thoughts shared on the internet, a little searching can land a stoner in a tinfoil hat faster than you can say “Area 51”. If your normally logical friend suddenly starts postulating on Illuminati and hollow earth, it might be the THC talking.
6. Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt
Paranoia over the thoughts of someone who isn’t there is a tell-tale sign that something is amiss. Although text messages leave a lot to be interpreted subjectively, if they suddenly start denying being high, with no accusation in the first place, it might be the THC talking.
7. You’re the best, man
8. Touchy, touchy
If your friend becomes overly, and repetitively, defensive over an innocuous comment, (that doesn’t concern weight or wrinkles), and tries to defend themselves to you like you are a police interrogator, it might be the THC talking.
9. Sudden technological brain damage
If your friend seems to start analyzing the marvels of basic modern technology as if seeing it for the first time, it might be the THC talking.
10. Severely delayed response time
If it takes a while to respond, mid-conversation either your friend has been in an accident, has children, or lost track of time while high. If it takes several hours or even a couple days to pick up where they left off, and they don’t remember the conversation though it is in the message history in front of them, it might be the THC talking.
Texting is becoming more popular than actually talking to people today. The level of basic human interaction is quickly being broken down to into memes and emoticons with little heart or substance. But even in today’s fast-paced lifestyle, hearing from a friend can make your day. Unless it is a reason to remember why you don’t talk to them very much anymore.
