Something Like Us

Twitter is a room where we can talk to ourselves and pretend what we’re saying is something interesting.

Facebook is a therapy session. At a bar.

Blogs are so we don’t annoy our spouses with our ramblings.

I’ve still not figured out the use of things like tumblr or Pinterest, but I image they’re like decorating the inside of your high school locker.

In fact, it’s all like decorating a locker. Pictures and little bits of poetry and aspirational sayings and cartoons.

We know it’s not us. But it’s something like us. And that feels a bit better than nothing.

  1. Thanks for that locker comparison, Alan. Now I feel like I'm back in high school getting my ass kicked by the jocks. :P
