Recently I saw a picture on my Facebook page that attempted to explain all the various social media. It went something like this:
Twitter: I need to pee.
Facebook: I peed.
Foursquare: This is where I pee.
Quora: Why am I peeing?
YouTube: Look at this pee!
LinkedIn: I’m good at peeing.
A lot of people found the mock-post actually useful for explaining the various websites, but personally, I thought something was missing. Where was Pinterest? There are so many options for this . . .
Recently Sis had her second episode of something disturbing. (You should first understand that during the winter months we refer to her as “Sicky McSickerson” or just “Plague”. So Sis having strange symptoms didn’t really strike us as all that odd . . .)
The first time this happened, she found a post on her Facebook one morning . . . a post she had made. And it said she was going to see “Billy Elliot”. She didn’t remember posting this. Nor did she have plans to see “Billy” (She’d already seen it twice!). But lo and behold, her credit card told a different story: Sis was not only the proud owner of a pair of “Billy” tickets, but they were for a show in North Carolina . . . where we don’t know anyone. It’s a good thing she and Brother-in-Law were free.
The thing was, Sis had taken a sleeping pill (something prescription) before bed. And she had gone to bed, then apparently gotten up with a jones for some Billy Elliot tickets. Just this week, she did it again. This time she hit Amazon and ordered up a book of all the dirty signs in American Sign Language. Yes, that’s my sister cussing you out in ASL, we are so proud.
Clearly, if Sis takes sleep meds again, she’ll need to be locked in somewhere or at least have her computer taken away. But who knows? Maybe Home Shopping will be her next stop. I’m not sure she can afford to sleep!
