I’ve been having a lot of fun lately playing around on Facebook.
The other day I was talking about this with my husband, telling him about all the different applications you can add to your profile.
“There are things that let you do stuff to other people besides ‘poke them’,” I told him. (“Poking” someone is one of the default actions on everyone’s profile along with things like “Send Message” and “View Photos”.) “But I don’t understand why you would want to poke someone in the first place.”
“Really?” he replied. “You don’t?” And then burst into chortling laughter, highly amused.
Um, no, I don’t. Is that like how when women want to share an emotion they will do so with a hug, or a pat on the hand, or possibly a nice note while men, apparently too moved for words, are forced to resort to smacking each other on the ass?
