B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling may not be following the five-year plan I made for them to get married in a lavish televised ceremony in Los Angeles, have children named after various pop stars, and skip off into the sunset — but then again, these two are capable of bringing their fans to grateful tears with just their pure and unadulterated friendship.
Novak took to Twitter on Friday to congratulation Kaling on just how far she’s come in her career, and his message is so sweet it will have you binging old episodes of The Office and convincing yourself that Ryan and Kelly, and by extension Mindy and B.J., are forever meant to be.
“When I met @mindykaling she lived in a small apartment on Fairfax Ave,” Novak tweeted, alongside a photo of a bus stop shelter with an enormous promo of Kaling’s face in A Wrinkle in Time. “This is what’s in front of that building today. Congrats Mindy and a future congrats to all those who see you in it and are inspired to do great things.”
“Oh my god I’m like full crying,” Kaling responded, echoing all of our inner dialogues. “I will never be mad at you again.”
She likely will, eventually, be mad again, as she once described her relationship with B.J. to InStyle as “romantically charged camaraderie with large arguments,” but I digress.
Fans and longtime shippers are feeling emotional about this exchange, to say the least.
Kaling has come so far in her career since her Office days, and we’re glad Novak is there for her with words of affirmation. (As we all know, Ryan definitely wouldn’t be).
