In April I created my Facebook account (ok so I wasn't fully responsible, my internal champ IT support located and created the profile pic and got me set up) The intent was to keep in touch with the HCBC and entertain Kim with statuses.
Fast forward a couple months and I started getting envious of the amount of friends that all of my Facebook Friends had. So I aggressively started gathering friends.
AS most of you know, the best place to locate friends are from your high school group (and my dad's PSI fan club). My first in this group was my nemesis. My biggest competitor in debate, grade point, FBLA, DECA and now my Facebook friend. The conversations that followed cracked me up beyond belief. One friend after another have been added (yes I know that my 80 something doesn't compare to your 300 something). Some make sense, some are just odd.
My latest addition is the oddest. My 7th grade BFF. Our friendship ended in 9th grade when she became extremely jealous of my blossoming friendship with someone with the same name. In fact the relationship ended with a break up note taped to my locker signed : Amy Hansen not Greenwell. We have not talked since 1984.
24 years later it is somehow ok to be friends. Is it a phenomena that no one can really explain or is it that we are both desperate to increase our friend count?
By the way Greenwell - I think you should join!!!!
