Recently, I discovered I had been defriended by someone on Facebook. This isn’t a reason to call the local papers (what’s a paper?). Nor does it really even merit a passing mention on a mediocre blog such as this. In short, who gives a shit? But I’m not going to let lack of general interest or importance prevent me from writing something that I think is going to be hilarious. Or at the very least, awesome. Right?
Getting defriended is not at all remarkable. Who among us hasn’t accepted someone’s virtual friendship after meeting them at a bar or a conference or a swingers party, only to completely forget who they are a month later and remove them from your FB friend zoo? But what is noteworthy is getting defriended by someone you see on a regular basis. With whom you believed you were friends. Or at the very least cordial acquaintances. This is what happened to me. Get your tissues out.
