You may have noticed that I have stopped liking your blog posts.
I am waging my own personal war against the Like button here on WordPress, and your blog postings are collateral damage.
It just got to the point where, after getting the zillionth fake Like from some blogger I knew had never bothered to read my latest post, let alone taken the time to form an opinion of it, I decided that if I have something to say, I’ll say it, and if not, I’ll keep quiet and wait for your next post.
It doesn’t mean I don’t like your most recent post, you know, the one about when you were five years old and you were walking with Grandpa Lou and he stopped and showed you an autumn leaf, and the leaves falling outside your house right now, why, they look just like that leaf, only the ones outside your house all smell like pee because the Nickelson’s cat has a urinary tract infection?
I LOVE that post, but I’m not going to Like it.
And I’m not going to Like that photo you just posted of the sun setting behind that pile of old brick pavers and broken fence posts in your backyard, even though that must be the seventh picture of the sun setting in Minnesota you’ve posted this month already and really, do you think I don’t know what a setting sun looks like? We have sunsets in Pennsylvania, too. And why don’t you clean up that mess in your backyard so your wife stops bitching about it?
But I love that post.
And don’t expect me to Like that post about your vacation to that
swanky Caribbean resort where you drank $1 Pina Coladas every night and you woke up on the beach the last day with a New York Giants football helmet on your head and a wadded up piece of paper in your hand, all sweaty and smudged with the name “Julio” (at least, you think it said “Julio”) written on it and you couldn’t remember how you got there.
So I’m telling you right now, don’t go thinking I don’t love your posts just because I stopped Liking them.
