facebook, I never thought quitting you would be such a big deal.
I am glad to be done with the annoyances, mind-numbing activity of checking status updates and hurtfulness of people un-friending each other. What I didn't realize - and how could I? - was how far off the grid everyone assumes I want to be. It's as though quitting facebook was my way of saying I want nothing to do with your life.
And that? Not true.
Just because I don't want to deal with facebook doesn't mean I don't want to know - or should have the privilege of knowing - when things happen. Pregnancies, engagements, ridiculous things our kids do, graduations, fabulous trips to far off places ... I want to know about this as much as any of your 247 friends.
So the next time you're talking to me and I don't know about the latest thing - just take a few seconds to fill me in instead of laughing at me and telling me I should "just join facebook to find out." That's what FRIENDS do.
