It’s not always the worst thing in the world to have thoughts/ideas that could be deemed as inappropriate. In other words, it’s one thing to have devious thoughts, but it’s another thing to share, or even act upon them. Fortunately, this blog is perhaps the ideal forum in which I can express my “I’d-sure-think-about-doing-that, but-never-act-upon-it” type of thoughts.
I would bet that the average Facebook user has at least a few hundred friends. This means he or she probably frequently gets invites to events via Facebook. (I like to often point out somewhat jokingly that without Facebook, I’d never get invited to anything). Anyway, once in while you’ll see a status like “What’s good tonight?” or “What’s everyone up to tonight?” or “What’s everyone up to for July 4th?”
Once in a while I’m kinda tempted to post something like those statuses mentioned above. Then I’ll find myself reconsidering, because I usually realize I’ve already been invited to an event by a Facebook friend. I mean, if that person should read my status, surely they’d think, “Wtf. Why is this person acting like they have no options, and is looking for something to do? Is my party not good enough for him?”
Overwhelmingly, most people skip out on events not because it’s a personal thing with the person who invited them. Even if I were get a Facebook-invite to a circle jerk event that’s taking place two hours from where I live, I still wouldn’t publically announce in a status that I’m looking for something else to do that night. What can I say. I guess I’m just too nice, even to the hypothetical circle jerk organizers.
Another “You probably shouldn’t post this on Facebook” post coming soon.
