Since I’m not on Facebook, I’m not down with the cultural trends of the social network, but is that what people do? Post their phone numbers on the Internet? That’s like publishing your home address, or taking a picture of your license plate. All of which are things that should be on your Don’t Ever Do This list. Especially if you’re a woman. Any lunatic could find your number and subsequently text you saying he’s looking at you through your window. And then you’ll be forced to wash the powdered sugar off your face.
While I have virtually no trouble picking up a phone today (the only remnants of my phone call-dreading years surface while leaving tongue-tied voicemail messages), I rarely have the need. School assignments and work questions can be dealt with via email. And I can reply to that party invitation over Facebook while I simultaneously consult my friend on proper party attire through a text message.
There always seems to come a time after I
find myself unwillingly single when I have to force myself to fall out
of love to keep from falling into despair. I think that was Thursday
E texted me at 1:30 in the morning:
Sorry about everything u should get better than me you are a beautiful woman
