I’m going to say this straight up and assume that you will all understand the enormity of it: My mom is on Facebook. She just friended me. I love my mom. A lot. You guys know that. She knows that. But this is a little like having my mom chaperoning my senior prom. Not in the sense that I’m making out with some guy in a dark corner, because I’m totally not. Nor have I ever, ever done anything like that, as far as my mom knows.
I think I know who is responsible for this fiasco, but I will not name names like CJ and Lisa. I will note that my mom’s profile pic is of Aubrey’s two cats. So certain someones left their sticky little fingerprints all over everything. I want to apologize immediately to Aubrey, Craig and Sean, because I can clearly see that when I opened a FB account way back when, you felt the same way about me as I feel now.
And mom, now that you’re on a roll, if you suddenly get a wild hair and decide to start your own blog, I should warn you that all the blog space on the internet has already been reserved. No empty slots left. It’s a shame, right?
In conclusion, I would like to extend a warm FB welcome to my mom! While at the same time, hailing the beginning of the end of this particular form of social media.
