The Perils of Facebook


There I was....scrolling through the newsfeed, reading posts, smiling at cute pictures of kittens and puppies, clicking links, etc. when I came across a post by a friend about a trip he's taking on Thursday for a long weekend. Someone asked him where he was going and it turns out he's coming back down to SoCal (he moved back to Oregon a couple years ago) for "Halloween fun" with two friends...and he named them.

One of those friends is my ex.

Seeing my ex's name in black and white on Facebook caught me off guard. The thought of him and the others running around SoCal's Halloween events brought back memories - good and bad. It made me realize how the mere thought of him can still make my heart ache.

Ironically, I'm taking Thursday and Friday as vacation days and I have no plans. 

FML.

I'm sorry to hear that this Halloween season, you are still haunted by the presence of your ex. HUGS.

I'm not on Facebook and don't ever want to be. Just another reason why. Just let it go Mark and enjoy your long weekend.
Hugs,
Stan

I can barely keep up with my blogs and the occasional visit to others so I sure don't have time for Facebook or Twitter. Maybe that will change someday but...
Cheer up Mark and make your own Halloween fun.
