Don’t Hate Me Because I Don’t Like You
Let me clarify. The absence of me liking you does not necessarily mean that I dislike you.
And now you are probably beginning to understand the title of my blog. I have a slight communication problem. Usually it sorts itself out when I am typing, as opposed to when I am speaking. I seem to be having technical difficulties today.
O.K. So, let’s begin again. I do not do Facebook. Why, you may ask, am I the one forty something year old woman on God’s green Earth who does not participate in this massive social network? Am I so technologically inept that I can’t even build a Wall and upload Photos?
Of course I could do these things; I just choose not to do them on Facebook. Let me tell you, people, I am so tech savvy, I probably knew about Facebook before you were even born. I considered opening an account way before people ever thought tweeting about going to the bathroom would be a fun way to spend the day. But I didn’t. Because I figured Facebook was a non-starter, and I didn’t have the time to waste reporting my life story as it happened.
Yeah. I know. Ironic, huh? I thought maxi dresses were never going to take off, either.
Anyway, I fill my time with other things, so now I can’t be bothered with such trivial details as playing Farmville.
First of all, I must check my stats. Secondly, I must visit every blog I can find and comment so that the authors will be amazed by my wittiness and feel the need to visit my own site. Then, I must try to compose my next new latest and greatest blog post. In addition, I have to download app updates on my iDevices, restock my store in Fashion Story, and check to see if there are any new Glee songs that I want to sing and record. I have to make my moves on: Words with Friends, Hangin’ with Friends, and Chess with Friends. By that time, it’s time to check my stats again.
You see my dilemma.
So, I want you to know that when you “Like” me, I really appreciate it. And I would love to return the favor. In most cases, I visit your blog and try to write a clever comment on your most recent post. As soon as I figure out what the heck I’m doing with my Google Plus account, I will even +1 you. What I mean to say is, “Please don’t be offended if I don’t like you back.”
It’s not you. It’s me. Really.
