Here's the message I received:
"Hey, I didn't like this comment. My family and work associates read this... In the future keep it clean babe."
Two things about this message strike me as odd, if not, er, wrong:
- the incorrect usage of the ellipsis. (Yes, that was his usage, not mine.) Was he so upset that he edited himself?
- My comment to the sender of this missive wasn't even dirty. In fact, this person has been updating the FB to let us know of the exceedingly clean activities he has recently undertaken, such as visiting his local tanning salon. You see, he lives and works in a region that is obsessed with how you look, how celebrities look and how the impact of NOT spending time and money to look that way is fraught with personal and professional peril. To me, that's fucking dirty.
So what I said to him was in reply to a status update informing us that he is "plucked and tanned" and ready to head to a family gathering.
(Really? You need to tan for that? I digress.)
I said simply:
"Crack, back and sack?"
Really, that's unclean, babe? Methinks thou dost
preen protest too much.
*Except for all those times my ex hurled abuse at me for loving Facebook and my blog more than I did him, an accusation he also made in connection with my dog
