On Saturday Doug and I found ourselves with a last minute afternoon date. We hadn't realized a birthday party was drop off so we ran and got some coffee. As we sat in the coffee shop and chatted, I overheard a conversation near us by 2 twenty something women. They were talking about something they saw on Facebook.
I turned back to Doug. "Have you ever noticed how often people talk about Facebook? It happens to me everyday. 'Did you see this on Facebook? Did you see what I posted on Facebook?' It's so annoying."
Doug rolled his eyes at me. "I don't know why Facebook annoys you so much. You have a blog. You tweet. What is it about Facebook?"
(I really don't like Facebook but that is not the point. Is has turned me into a paranoid crazy person. I'm starting to obsesses over why people don't accept my friend request. I hate you Mark Zuckerberg.
"Your not even on Facebook."
"True. But it is just another means of communication. Do you talk about email?"
"Do you talk about phone calls?"
"Yes you do. You ask me all the time if I got your message."
"That's because you don't call me back. But you are missing my point. My point is people spend so much time talking about what is happening on Facebook they aren't living their life. Can't we live our lives? Do we have to live them on Facebook?"
"Jodi, you sound 80." At which point he started mimicking me like a pirate. My husband thinks I'm an 80 year old pirate.
We are the strangest couple alive.
