An Apology to Facebook

Dear Facebook,

I must apologize for my hasty and harsh judgment of you. I thought I had no use for you; I did not wish to hook up with anyone or plan parties for sole purpose of consuming alcohol. I thought you were trendy, which is not really my style. I didn't need to make a list to know I have a lot of friends. I didn't want to poke anyone at all. I thought emails were sufficient for keeping in touch with friends. I laughed when my husband said he opened one of your accounts because he had to for a class. I thought I was too OLD for you.

I was wrong. Please forgive me.

My mom isn't too old for you and neither is my aunt, and I found so many friends I haven't sent emails to in ages. And I'm not feeling pushed into false trendiness, or even thinking about planning drinking parties. I only hook up with my husband who is one of my friends, the only one listed under my Relationship Status. I like to see what what lives my friends are leading now, what their kids look like and what kinds of people write on their walls.
I like you Facebook and I'm sorry I misjudged you. Just please don't poke me too much.

Love,
Your New Friend

I understand you completely!! Now that I have been on facebook, I have found more that 2 or 3 good friends I had lost touch with. I'm very grateful for that! I just need to convince more of my friends what you and I now know! ;)

I love this! (When I first heard about Facebook I thought it was something through OU that only OU students could have a Facebook account.) You are very good at expressing yourself through writing. I guess it comes (partly) from living with a writer. Maybe I should come hang out at your house more often!
