Facebook What Are You Doing To Me?

A Prose About The Cons of Facebook
Facebook, what are
You doing to me
You make feel inferior
Why can’t you see
My life was full
Until I signed up
I feel like a loser
49 friends aren’t enough
My nieces and nephews
Are at 400 plus
Who talked me into
This nonsense stuff
Now I’m addicted
What can I do
I creep people’s pages
To see what they do
Stalking used to be
Driving by a guy’s house
Now where’s the excitement
You stalk from your couch
I finally kicked
My farming addiction
Close to an intervention
I recognized my affliction
In my day, those pictures
Would have been burned
We’d be sent to confession
Until we learned
I don’t get the craze
Life is so fleeting
Who really cares
What muffin you’re eating
And yet we wait
With baited breath
It’s almost as bad
As crystal meth
I actually have 47 friends. I had 49, but lost two. I don’t know who they were, or when they dumped me…..
My blog has a Facebook page, which I’d love for you to follow!

About Wrinkles and Flab and Hair! Oh My!

You may be wondering about my choice of blog name. Well, I’m a few years north of 40 and I thought I would surely be the exception… turns out I’m not. This blog is to address the good, the bad and the ugly of getting older and just the mundaneness of everyday life. The wrinkles have set in. The flab just appeared. And the hair…when, how and WHY did it start growing there?!?! I welcome all who want to read. Those over 40 that are going through or have gone through the same thing, I hope we can chat like sisters, laugh like friends and shed a tear or two if needed. Those who are under 40 and are curious to see what lies ahead, come take a look behind the pre-menopausal curtain. Any men that are interested in reading, I welcome you too. I must, however, warn you of the disillusionment that may lie ahead. Likely, in your eyes, it will be the undoing of the feminine mystique. We are here to support one another on this crazy journey and I welcome all feedback. I’ll start with my stories and I hope you chime in with yours! So, everyone hop aboard and let’s take this ride together and see where it leads!
