THE PAST IS A LOUSY PLACE TO HANG OUT IN

Some of my friends have a Face Book account. (And most of them are in their 60's.)

Is this sad or laughable?

I have a Lunch Counter. But I'm anonymous. Is this pathetic or devious?

Honestly, the last place I want to be is in front of the computer chatting up high school acquaintances. (Hey... I forgot you on purpose. Why the fuck would I want to renew something that had no legs to begin with?) Besides, it would just mean I'd likely have to attend more fucking funerals... and I've had a goddamned belly full of them.

Not a single one of my friends or work colleagues knows about The Lunch Counter. This is a private eatery, patronized (on occasion) by a few people I don't know from Adam. And that's the way, uh-huh uh-huh, I like it.

If I ever feel the need to reconnect with my ancient past, my wife (under strict orders) has the go-ahead to kill me.


P.S. Hey Janice... I hope you don't still hate me for dumping you in Grade 13, eh? I mean, the pain would be too much to bear.

It's easier to join facebook when you're young, accumulate a lot of friends fast, and then delete accordingly as time goes on. I don't delete many people but I'll initiate a purge even Stalin would be proud of when the time is right.

Maybe I'm afraid no one will 'friend' me.
High school redux.

But let's say I had a Face Book account. I guess today's entry would be:

Yesterday, I picked strawberries.
