I will admit that I don’t like Facebook. But as much as I don’t like it – I definitely use it as my catalyst for not needing to talk to people (hello? That’s what Status updates are for).
Nothing ever new really comes out on Facebook but there have been the occassional scandals. I’ve learned of divorces, cheaters and numberous pregnancies have all been aired out on Facebook.
However, there are moments when I love Facebook… like this past weekend when one of my absolute best friends from elementary school found me and sent me a note.
I get e-mail notifications on my phone (shout out to MOtorola Droid! I love you!) – and I was in the car with my husband running errands. I got the little notification, I opened my e-mail and saw the friend request from my dear old pal, Erin.
And I actually squealed.
Jeremy asked what I was so damn happy about and I told him that my best friend from elementary school sent me a friend request. His reponse? “I thought Carrie was your best friend growing up.”
Hello? I was like 9 years old. I have multiple best friends… I even had a revolving door of best friends like most little kids. Erin was one of them!
I was stoked to see that she’s living it up in Florida and that her family is doing so well. She sent me her number and said if I wanted to catch up, I should definitely call her.
While I’d absolutely love to – I hardly call anyone. I get weekly phone calls from my mom declaring that if she didn’t call me, I’d never know if she was dead because I don’t call her. I talk to my brother maybe 3 times a year. I don’t really talk to anyone else.
Do I call? Do I not call? Do I just send her MY phone number and write the same message? I feel like I’m trying to hook up with someone on Match.com or something…
Ever reconnect with an old pal (I’m talking over 20 years) on a social network? Hate talking on the phone too?
