Daughter-Only was texting the guy she's calling her best friend this week--who several years ago was her boyfriend and with whom she's maintained a fairly steady friendship broken up by occasional weeks of "I hate him! He's an ass!" where they weren't speaking to each other. This guy was talking about Daughter-Only maybe coming over to hang out over Thanksgiving break but warned her that it was boring at his dad's house.
D-O responded: Well at least you'll have company.
Best Friend For Now: Yeah, and misery loves company.
BFFN: But company only likes misery as a friend.
BFFN: Hence it's miserable.
*Not only did she give me permission to plagiarize her text conversation, she practically begged me to do it.
