I have two Facebook accounts.
One for work.
One for my family and close friends.
And, I have this blog.
Facebook #1: people who know me, listen to me, sell me their products and political views
Facebook #2: people I grew up with, who know me well
This blog: I can count on one hand the people who read it because they know me personally, but mostly you all just come here because you "met" me in passing, and you like me
Yesterday, I posted a message regarding the Chilean mine rescue. I posted the same message in all three places.
I was looking for someone to watch the event unfold with me.
I even gave a running commentary throughout the afternoon while I was broadcasting live on the air.
A few diehard Ack!Thbbbt! folks left a comment here on this blog. (Thank you. I love you!)
But, no one said boo on either of my FB pages.
And no one called the studio to say anything either.
Not one, "hey, thanks for the updates", nor any "knock it off already"s.
When I got home, I watched the live feed on the internet. The boys came home from their extra-curriculars, and I excitedly told them all of the miners were out.
"Oh, that's good." And they went about doing their homework.
Be responsible and hard-working young men. See if I care.
To The Husband I asked, "What does that tell me? I need a life? I need better friends?"
Sadly, he replied, "It means we are all more alone than we want to admit."
Have a frickin' great day.
