“Like”? No- like.

I just sent an old friend a Facebook birthday greeting.  Shrug.

This friend and I go way back.  For over 25 years, we sent each other cards every year on our birthdays.  A few years ago that practice stopped.  Who knows why?  Now Facebook reminds me when it’s her birthday and I post a pithy little greeting on her timeline.  Check that activity off my to-do list and move on.


Why don’t I have the guts, interest, or time to send cards anymore?   Facebook doesn’t prevent me from also sending cards, but as the years go by and I send fewer snail-mail cards, I have fallen out of the practice – and I feel bad about it.
