I have become, like many of you, a Facebook addict.
I don’t obsess over it. However, I do feel something akin to loss and slight instability if I don’t check it at least once a day. Or twice a day. Or anytime I have a free hour.
It has become a burden to me, on many levels, and yet not one I’m willing to give up. (Never fear, at the end of this post, I will not be swearing off Facebook.)
Things I didn’t care about in the least, things I didn’t even know, are now common, even necessary, knowledge to my everyday life.
There are so many rants that have been done about Facebook, and I have to say all the best ones are already out there – people who join groups, people who join stupid groups, people who post things to provoke controversy, people who use hearts and smiley faces (guilty!), needy people who post co-dependent statuses, etc.
But that said, I have to put my own unique spin on what cracks me up.
Here it is – people who “like” the group – Being Conservative.
Really? I mean, really? You “like” Being Conservative?
Okay, okay, well let me pare down why that makes me laugh every. single. time.
So every time I see someone “like” Being Conservative, I picture them wearing culottes. And some of them, most of them, look pretty ridiculous. With men, it’s especially funny.
Me, I don’t “like” Being Conservative.
Being Conservative sounds boring and staid.
I mean, I’d like Being Passionate, Being Exciting, Being Fun, Being Joyful, etc. But, Being Conservative? Snore.
Being Conservative sounds like a root canal is about to take place.
So, I’m just saying - if you "like" Being Conservative, just realize - somewhere out there, someone is going to be visualizing you wearing culottes, and you are going to be looking pretty ludicrous.
And that’s something I can imagine Being Passionate about.
