Facebook is a funny thing. The people you thought you’d never lose touch with that you inevitably lose touch with find you once again on Facebook. It’s awesome, in an awkward way.
However, what are you supposed to talk about to someone you knew in the first grade?
“Hi! Um, so what’s been going on in your life for the last *perform mad math skills* 24 years?”
“Hey, remember Mrs. So and So? I wonder what happened to her?”
“Remember that time you wet your pants and had to wear boys underwear? That was funny.”
It’s weird. I have a whole bunch of friends, but I rarely talk to any of them. Just more fodder for The Guilt. I wonder sometimes, should I drop a line? Should I poke them? Should I start a Scrabble game? Perhaps they would be interested in Pet Society/Fashion Wars/Sorority Life/Random Time Wasting Application?
But I don’t do it. Because I’m certain that they, too, when seeing my notification, will feel The Guilt. They may be thinking, what I am supposed to say to her? I hate Scrabble/pets/fashion/sororities/wasting time? This sucks.
And I feel bad already.
And are you guilty, too, of someone finding you that you know you’re supposed to know, but you don’t know? Erm, me neither. Ahem.
I found this little ditty, just for you facebook addicts.
