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.
