Yeah, so I am behind on the times. I don't MySpace, and until today I didn't Facebook either. I just never really wanted to get involved in that whole thing, thinking that I couldn't always keep up on my blog, so why get into one more thing that could be a potential addiction.
I finally caved, though, after yet another Facebook friend request came through on my email. I went in and set myself up, ok'd a couple of friend requests, and then - just for giggles - searched for folks from my High School.
Oh. My. Golly. The names and faces that jumped out at me! The memories (many of them that should have remained safely buried) that floated to the surface of my mind. To think that all these folks are out there, living their lives......it just seems wrong. Shouldn't the folks from your past just stay two dimensional characters that never move beyond that time in your life? It is so hard for me to think of the skinny-minnie cheerleader as that chubby soccer mom I see in the picture. Or the buff football star as that (obviously drunk) balding man.
And they have kids! And spouses! Yikes.
So now I wonder....do I really want to contact them and find out what their lives have become? Or would I rather just leave things as they are?
