Big brother is watching
Somehow, without intending to, I got my whole family onto Facebook. It's been a great way to keep in touch and find out what everyone is up to. Otherwise, how would I know my 16 year old niece has a boyfriend or that my nephew is a track star and an A student? I was also using the "check in" feature on Facebook until recently. One of my many old brothers (there are 5 of them), called me because he was concerned. He pointed out that I may not want everyone and their creepy neighbors knowing where I am and when. He finished the conversation by saying "I know you won't listen to me but as your brother I had to mention this". This is the same brother who seemed to have a special skill for tormenting me as a child. His ways were extensive and quite stealth. Maybe it is because he has a daughter now. Maybe it is because you never outgrow "big brother" mode. Whatever the reason, I decided to take his advice and go underground. Now, if you want to find me, you will have to use your imagination.
