When I started writing this blog, my first goal was to get a comment on it from a complete stranger.
Not my aunt.
Not a friend, former co-worker, or teammate.
Someone I had never met.
It didn’t take too long for that to happen.
Then I found out about Facebook pages.
I had no idea you could even have more than one page.
It seems the more I use technology and social media, the more I realize I don’t know about technology and social media.
So anyway, I remember my initial goal being 100 likes.
Now I’m closing in on 2,500.
And I’m finding myself in another one of those be-careful-what-you-wish-for situations.
Because when you have 2,476 likes,
not everyone is going to see eye to eye.
Especially with me.
Apparently “liking” someone doesn’t actually mean you like someone.
So Judge Judy came back last night.
I kind of thought after all of the diaper drama that I wasn’t going to hear from her again.
(If you missed all that, read this).
There has been a lot of really ground-breaking reporting in the news lately.
Amanda Bynes shaved half of her head.
Kim Kardashian showed off her baby bump.
And Gwyneth Paltrow wore a see through dress.
That is some important shit to know right there.
The Gwyneth one really struck me as funny.
All I could think of was Number 4 and her first couple weeks of first grade.
(If you missed that, read this).
So I put this on the facebook page last night:
In a couple years when I’m famous, I’ll take all the no-underwear-heat off of you.
I never wear underwear.
What a waste.
And that’s when Judge Judy reappeared.
She left this comment:
The rod and rebuke give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother. Proverbs 29:15
In an effort to hold my tongue, I called for backup.
A couple people commented.
And Judge Judy said this:
ARE YOU GOING TO ARGUE WITH THE BIBLE?
She wasn’t just quoting Bible verses now.
She had moved on to all caps.
There are two subjects I don’t talk about on the blog or facebook page.
Religion and politics.
They are hot button topics.
And sometimes very divisive.
So I stay away from those.
I am not anti religion in any way.
And I don’t believe there is one right way.
To each his or her own.
But I pretty much operate under this philosophy:
I don’t expect everyone to agree with me all the time.
I can handle a little constructive criticism.
But when it starts turning toward harassment,
and then when quotes from the Bible are added into the mix,
that’s where I draw the line.
So last night I had my first facebook breakup.
One little click of a button,
and where her judgemental, Bible quoting, all caps comments had been,
Nita has been banned from your page.
I have to admit, I quite liked that.
Too bad there’s not one of those buttons for real life…
