1. Okay, so let’s say your best friend, who happens to live in London, sends you a bouquet of exotic flowers on a random day to tell you she’s thinking of you. Do you:
a) Call her up to thank you; follow up call with a thank-you card
b) Take a picture of the roses and send them to 250 of your “closest” friends with a note saying, “Roses from my BFF in London. I miss you [as in her] sooooooo much darling!”
Good ol’ Facebook.
I just want to know, how does one respond to such updates? Take the BFF/flower situation, for example. Do you…
a) Comment: “Ohhhh, you’re so lucky. You have the best friends in the world and mine are kind of sucky compared to yours.”
b) Tell her if you were still in high school you would totally vote for her for Homecoming Queen, then remind her that YOU’RE NOT IN HIGH SCHOOL ANYMORE.
c) Go to your own wall, post a picture of a goat and write, “My BFF in Ethiopia just named this after me! I miss you, Mb!uti.
Do I just need to block more people? Is that my problem? How do you all stomach Facebook?
And totally sorry if I offended anyone with this post—the reason I never block anybody is because I genuinely like everyone I’m friends with on FB, regardless of what they post. It’s not you I don’t like; it’s Facebook. (Which is why I only log in if there’s a really good reason, like to find out Kevin spent Monday at work celebrating Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen’s birthday, complete with a cake that had their pictures on it.)
WHAT’S COOKIN’ 2NITE:
Lots and lots of beef. Beef EVERYTHING. Beef stew, roast beef, beef Bourginon, beef salad, beef cake covered in beef frosting with tiny beef sprinkles…
