i left southgate michigan striking north towards detroit, thinking about how i was going to persuade f2fb friend #311 julia kovach to help out another facebook friend. . . last year my new year’s resolution was to meet every one of my 325 facebook friends. to get out from behind the computer. . . to spend real time with real friends. now i think something intriguing is developing in terms of putting together facebook friends who need each other.
but first, my oldest facebook friend–she’s marguerite joseph (f2fb friend #312) and she’s 104 years old. facebook has lots of rules. for instance, i can’t have more than 5000 friends. not just me, nobody can have more than 5000 friends.
my friend marguerite joseph is 104 years old. she is turning 105 on april 19th. however, facebook only recognizes a maximum age of 99. doesn’t facebook realize that centenarians use facebook too?
marguerite definitely looks younger than 104 and she was a most wonderful hostess for the evening. i stayed overnight and prepared for the next day’s meeting in detroit with not one, not two, but three different facebook friends. each of whom needs another of my facebook friends. . . . well, at least i think they do!
p.s. log on your facebook account, find marguerite joseph, send her a birthday greeting (tell her you’re my friend)–i promise that her granddaughter will read each greeting to her and when you’re having your one hundred and fifth birthday, i’ll send you a birthday greeting on facebook! even if facebook says you’re a mere 99 years old!
i wonder. . . do you think facebook could shave 6 years off my official age?
nobody lies about their age on facebook!
