I am at a loss for words when anyone, myself included, makes a post via Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, a forum, etc, only to get that infamous one word reply. “Huh?” “What?” Even worse is when you make a simple statement, as I did earlier tonight, and the question you on it. I wasn’t asking for comments, although I know that this is the internet and you are open for them … But still, one of my old high school friends felt the need to question me.
James: “Sometimes I forget, but I have the best wife, awesome son, wonderful friends and family and 2 great jobs.”
Friend: “How do you forget something like that, especially the 2 great jobs?”
Well, first of all, I was referring to the fact that even something as great as family can be taken for granted. Sure, maybe I should have elaborated on this, but 140 characters isn’t a lot of space to go into detail. Perhaps I should have even said, “take for granted the fact,” but, there you go again, you’re using up characters! So, thanks to the limitations of messaging services, I get asked a question that I never intended to be asked.
So then I make a post concerning my “World of Warcraft” warlock and how I am beginning to create his backstory in my head just as I did my hunter. Again, same said friend comments: “Huh?” and follows up with, “Are you speaking geek now?”
My final action was to just delete every cotton-picking thing I’d written. Even the post that wasn’t commented on. I don’t go around commenting on every worthless piece of information other folks care to share. Like, “Oh, I have the greatest kid.” Really? Cause I think mine is pretty darn awesome. “Woops, lil Ricky just spit up! Isn’t that cute?! Here’s a pic.” No, actually it’s not cute. It’s disgusting. You shouldn’t feed him the whole bottle. And, yeah, thanks, I really wanted to see a picture of vomit. Next time I take a dump, I’ll be sure to share a picture of it.
So there, another issue off my chest. Thank you, and good night.
