  • Katelyn-No, no those were the ones you bought for YOURSELF that you didn’t like so you gave to me. 😕 Evan- Oh, oh. Well onto- Katelyn- And we decided to use my keycap as the sacrificial one 😞 Evan- Well- uhm- M-Mines part of the set! And we can buy you a new one! Katelynn- 🙄 Katelynn- Is that a cat hair? *insert joob ( idk how to spell the cats name)* Even- *insert maniacal laughter* Katelyn- You should do tiny island masses by dotting the brown paint! *Brown paint explodes* Me- Well, at least now you don’t have to do that because it did it for you? That’s nice of the brown to do that for y’all- Evan- UGHHHH DA DA DA DA DA DA DA! Me- Dude you were just really mad and now you wanna sing what- * After taking the GOOD keycap out of the mold* Evan and Katelynn- DO DO DO DO RESIN TIME * while jumping up and down surprisingly aggressively*

  • I love Evan's speech inserts if that makes sense, I laugh every time mostly because Katelyn always knows exactly what he's saying even when all that comes out is "So I think we might need to" "yeah so we should" "yep okay let's do it". It's great ❤️You guys are so cool!
