“My beautiful boys. #blessed”
“Look at how happy my life is!”
“Dirty laundry. Dirty laundry. Dirty laundry.”
“ANGRY POLITICAL RANT IN ALL CAPS!!!!”
Admittedly, this isn’t exactly what I see when I log onto Facebook, but it’s pretty close.
For all intents and purposes, I have stopped sharing pieces of my life on Facebook. That is, until this weekend when the universe was throwing me some MAJOR shade in the form of a belligerent woman who told me to suck a dick in the parking lot of CVS, a dead bird, and a car accident with a woman who fell asleep behind the wheel of her car (everyone is fine). I just had to vent. I don’t regret sharing to the book of faces, but the thought certainly crossed my mind…
Who gives a poop?
I rarely use Facebook anymore, but when I do, it’s for blog promo purposes. Or to share pictures of Buster.
You never get tired of Buster pictures, do you?
The other day I wanted to share a status involving a gorgeous deer I spotted in my parent’s backyard (with the caption “imagine you’re a deah!” <name that movie). Instead, I texted it to my friend but my iPhone screwed up the punch line and I typed “imagine you’re a drag” instead. I thought about sharing a status about how I had managed to pump my own gas in New York until I realized, oh hai! NO ONE cares!
You know that expression about roads being paved with good intentions? I really do think that most of us are good people at our core. Sometimes we check in on each other (and dogs left behind in hot cars!) because we want to help. But sometimes, for whatever reason, our day starts off on the wrong foot; perhaps we’re caught in a moment; maybe someone looks at us the wrong way and it sets off a chain reaction. Because we then set out into the world with the best of intentions but someone looks at us funny and it sets off our inner dragons.
I’m not sure where I’m going with this.
Anyway. Back to Facebook. I’m not a fan any longer. I keep debating on whether or not I should close it for good. But some of you have really adorable kiddos and some hilarious statuses and I’m not sure I’d get the same viral dog videos on Twitter.
Thoughts? Comments? What do you share on Facebook?
