Wow. Let's just pretend I intentionally took a month+ off.
Recently I've had a few Facebook friends either bid the FB world goodbye or drastically reduce their friend lists. I get it. I do. I mean, let's not pretend that Facebook isn't a colossal time suck. Even I know that. And I've got "friends" on Facebook that I've never met in real life. Friend of a friend of a friend. I can see wanting to just connect with people that you actually connect with in real life.
But let me tell you why I'll keep all my friends, thankyouverymuch. Everyone in our house has some sort of summer crud going on. I actually had a fever last night. We all cough all night. No one sleeps. The weather's been amazing, and we're too busy hacking up our lungs to enjoy it. So I popped on Ye Olde Facebook this week and asked for some Princess Bride quotes to brighten the day.
Oh, Friends. The rest of my day was peppered with:
- Never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!
- Is this a KISSING book?
- Sleep well and dream of large women.
- Wuv, twue wuv...
- Hallo. my name is Indigo Mantoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
And there were so many more! From people I talk to all the time, from people I never get to see. People I've known forever and people I've just met.
And it completely made my day.
