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?
IM SO HAPPY YOU BLOGGED TODAY! But no pressure. Im on facebook but i dont get any action because i dont know anybody! you reminded me of that scene in Grease where Kenicky and danny have that bonding moment where they hug and then both freak out and start combing their hair.
Yeah, guys are kinda funny in moments like that 🙂
Jenny… when MY husband talks about “poking” he ain’t talking about hitting someone’s rear! Just sayin’…. your hubby and mine may have the same idea in mind… 😉
Hm…good point Judy 😛
Yes, i have always been a bit mystified by the whole butt pat thing. No no, I couldn’t possible voice my emotion to you… I’ll settle for invading your personal space.
I’m with Judy. Men have how many sexual thoughts in a minute? I think it’s at least 35 😉
No no, I couldn’t possible voice my emotion to you… I’ll settle for invading your personal space.

Cultural innuendos can be amusing. If you poke of jab some people they may laugh at you. Yet, if you do something like that to other people, you may be infringing on somene’s cherished personal space and even get slapped with a harassment suit.
