So on the heels of that honest movie, how about an observation?
If you know me, you know that I try to keep the door open in any relationship. I’m often looking for a chance to help rebuild a bridge from the past, whether they were the ones holding the original matches that burned it or if I was.

That’s the interesting thing about social media. Sometimes you hope that by staying friends with someone online you might find yourself friends again in face-to-face connections one day. Maybe it will happen progressively, over time. Or maybe they’ll get this weird urge out of the blue one day to look you up and say, “Dang it, that was dumb. Let’s go get Chipotle.”
Then one day… it goes the other way and you find yourself “unfriended.”
Facebook is such a funny little monster.
Some days it uses its strength to bring you food off the mountain top. Other times it leaves teeth marks in you, that for some reason other people “like.”
You think you can tame it, and even believe it to be your friend.
Then one day… something happens in the virtual world and a weird sort of sting happens to you in the real world.
Or maybe not. Maybe you’re a strong and silent lurker… or try to appear to be.
