Some months ago, I joined Facebook. I did it in order to prowl around and check it out while I decided whether or not I was okay with my then 14-year-old having his own Facebook account. Once I decided to allow him to do it, I was going to remove my account and let him sign up using my email address so that I would always get the email notifications and could keep an eye on what was going on on there. What can I say...I'm just nosy in his life like that. I am figuring it is payback for being a week overdue when he finally had to be taken by c-section. Anyway...with Facebook, once you've used an email address to establish an account, you can not reuse that same email address so when it got time to set up Jordan's account, my plan didn't work and we had to get him his own email address. Anyway, to make a long story not so long, I kept my Facebook page even though my original plan was only to test it out and then give it up. I had begun to get friend request's, etc. and just kind of went with it.
Fast forward to this week and now I have a confession to make. Apparently, I am NOT cool! I have a Facebook page but I know very little about how to use it or all of its capabilities.
Earlier this week I got a notification on my email that said something like this, "Your Friend (name withheld because of the millions of people who read this blog) has sent you 'Pieces of Flair'". I clicked on the link to "Pieces of Flair" (whatever that is) and proceeded to receive the flair that I was sent. FYI...flair looks like a little button and has a pic or a phrase of some sort on it. This particular one said something about the only thing better than a friend is a friend with chocolate (cute). So, here I am in Flairville, having no idea what to do next when the screen tells me that I'm out of flair credits. OH NO...OUT OF FLAIR CREDITS...WHAT'S A GIRL TO DO?!?!?!
This knowledge of my lack of flair suddenly took on a life of its own and I became intent on earning more flair credits. But why? I've walked 41 years on this earth and survived them all with no flair. Thanks a lot, Facebook...as if I don't have enough to worry about.
