So we have friends on social media, right? Sure. And sometimes people just aren't interested in what someone is posting and has no desire to see stuff anymore, right? Sure. All that I understand. And I have said to people that if people aren't interested then they're missing out... that the problem isn't with the person who is posting.
Well, today it kind of hit me, and I didn't know what to do with it. I mean I could normally care less, but when it's someone one has known for 31 years? And being unfriended because of posting a sports result? And not just any World Cup score, but the fact that a South African made the final of Wimbledon for the first time since 1985 (although other reports say since 1921). Now, sure. This person said weeks ago that anyone posting sports results would be unfriended... okay. But the reason?
I queried it and got told that because of the time difference it takes Americans eight hours to catch up on the news! Sorry? What? Hanson performed eight shows in Australia and I got each song on the setlist as it was being played. Anyway...
Yeah. I suppose there's a vital piece of information to understanding the background behind this friend I met in Standard 4 (what is now known as Grade 6). He happened to have a large part to play in where my spirituality is today, so he's not just any regular person that one might have never met.
