Facebook is all the rage these days. I am sure that some of these young whippersnappers resent the invasion of the Baby Boomers to the social network scene. Deal with it. I am enjoying catching up with old and new friends.
One of the things I love about Facebook are the status updates. Some people ponder really deep and thorny issues like this one from my friend Robin.
Why PopTarts, why do you only come in non-resealable pkgs of 2? Shouldn’t I have the choice to eat just 1 Tart w/out sacrificing the freshness of others?
That is just one example of the inequities of life that need to be addressed and only a few men like Robin have the courage to ask those tough questions. Shouldn’t a country that can put a MAN ON THE MOON be able to package PopTarts in freshness saving single packages? Why isn’t there outrage over this injustice?
Some use the status updates for mundane reports about going to work or doing laundry. Some status updates are funny.
Jeff is doubling the recipe and setting the oven to 700 degrees. That actually makes sense to a guy. The same friend recently wondered this.
Jeff is wondering if you have ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?
Think about it. Not quite right friend John posted this after waking up from minor surgery.
John is back up again after his anesthesia reboot. Noticable changes: I can list all the players for the 1937 Cleveland Indians, but I can’t say the word “spiquet”.
Hopefully John will have a full recovery and will be able to say spiquet again very soon. If not I am sure he will have a community of friends to help him say that often used word.
But my favorite Facebook moments are when friends share a slice of life that is real and sweet. High school friend Yolanda shared this moment yesterday in her status report.
