These digital times have benefits. I love the fact that I can go online and shop for everything from a tiny replica of Chitty Bang Bang to a new sofa. But this social media creep-me-out hunt-to-find-out-things are sometimes hard to stomach. I have been “friended” by non-friends and then “defriended” by them in a matter of weeks. The electronic “wiedeling” is only a fraction easier than the real life, face to face time. (to wiedel someone is to stop being friends with them with no explanation, a word I made up after a friend with the name did it to me) I appreciate the ability to spy into ex boyfriends, and frenemies’ lives but I have yet to find someone through Facebook that has rejuvenated a friendship beyond the electronic one. We’ll see though, recently I was friended by someone I had completely lost touch with. We had no falling out in our past, though I do vaguely remember something about a boy and his sweater. But regardless, fast forward to today and ironically we live in the same community. I believe I have purchased jewelry made by her at a local boutique and I am sure we know some of the same people, I mean here, it is impossible not to. We’re gonna have coffee soon—not virtually.
That is so great! I reconnected with a dear friend (she lives in Spain now) from third grade and now I mail her daughter tutus and she mails my son soccer jerseys! Enjoy the coffee. What a treat!!
