Rachel: I feel so pressured writing formal emails. Bah!
me: you’re fine
Rachel: Am I? Am I?
me: time for the double emphasis?
AM I? Am (italicized) I?
me: I feel like there’s a way to italicize in gchat
Rachel: I do, too, but I don’t know how.
me: what did you do?
Rachel: Asterisks on either side of the word bold it.
me: oh, asterisks
me: that just looks awesome on my screen
We should google “Gchat secrets”
me: check it!
I don’t know, Rachel. you tell me
Rachel: I don’t know how!!
me: really? really?
Rachel: You italicizing tease!
me: I am trying so hard not to burst out laughing at work right now
Rachel: I HATE you.
me: do you? do you?
Rachel: Tell me or I’ll get sad again!
YOU ARE DEAD TO ME.
me: you put underscores on either side of the word.
Rachel: dead to me.
don’t you mean YESSSSSSSSS.
Rachel: Oh, I do.
I’m going to start italicizing words that don’t make sense in sentences.
How’s your day going?
It should be noted that Rachel and I have been friends since our first journalism class at UNR. Five years later, we still do stuff like this (mostly, being silly on Gchat every day).
