Facebook Friend...Why Hath Thou Forsaken Me?
Maybe it’s because I’m in my 37th week of pregnancy. Maybe it’s because I’ve gained more than 40 pounds. Maybe it’s because--although I'm excited--I’m tired and frustrated, and want more than anything for Baby Holland to come out and join us in the world.
But it’s true. I have been using the “F” word lately. A lot. With anything and everything that presents itself, I can find a reason to use it. I use it when I'm driving. I use it when I spill my green tea. I even use it out of joy, as in, "That's f-cking awesome!"
I’ve also been a little more snarky and sarcastic...less lady-like than usual. No doubt this is reflected in my latest blog posts, like “Top 8 Things Strangers Say to Me About My Huge Pregnant Belly” and “Up the Butt on my Birthday.” I used the F-word numerous times in the "Top 8" post, and…well… “Up the Butt on my Birthday"....let’s just let that post speak for itself.
Anyway, as I was writing these posts, I knew that I was being a little more hard-core than usual. I knew it was a risk. And, today, when I checked out my Questionable Parenting Facebook Page and the number of my “Facebook” likes, my suspicions were confirmed…I have ONE LESS FACEBOOK LIKE! Somebody UNLIKED my Facebook page!
Was it the cussing? Was it the "up-the-butt" post? Or am I just unfunny and lame? Oh Facebook friend, why hath thou forsaken me???? Why???
In my defense, I can assure you all that I am actually a very classy individual. I'm a lady, allright? At least where (and when) it counts. All of my friends can vouch for this. (Right friends?) So I apologize if my sarcasm and bad language have offended you. I will try to start cussing less. I can’t promise anything, but I will fucking try.
