Every few days I get an invitation to be someone's friend on Facebook -- if you are one of the people I've snubbed because I didn't want to spend the 8 seconds required to set up an account, please forgive me.
I would have continued to pretend like Facebook doesn't exist, but then I had a "that is so 21st century" moment. An acquaintance was due to have a baby and I was waiting and waiting to hear the baby had arrived. Finally, the baby is 8 weeks old and I meet her at a party. I said, "Why the hell did no one tell me you had the baby?!"
And everyone at the table shook their head in agreement when the new mother shrugged and said, "You need to be on Facebook."
And then my dearest friend, who used to send me long, fabulous, hilarious e-mails daily, apologized that I haven't heard from her for so long saying, "Well, if you were on Facebook..."
Alas, here I am! And I'm the only one without 439 friends, so please come and be my Facebook friend.
