Can You Add Me?

Social networking at its best. MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn and the flavor of the month. Ten years gone by and all of a sudden, a message appears on your profile page. "Fennis Dembo would like to be added to your network of friends, family, acquaintances and strangers who bumped into you at a QuickChek". Love how none of us can hide anymore, but if you want to be linkedIn with me or connected in some way other than by coincidentally sitting next to each other at a sporting event back during the Clinton era, at least spell my name right when you request acknowledgement. Pretend you liked me at some point in your life and not just to add me as CONNECTION #4543 so you can be more popular than Paula Abdul at a Narcolepsy seminar. I honestly don't remember saying hi in April of 2004 as you pushed a shopping cart past me in WalMart. I don't have the vaguest recollection of that time we both jockeyed for position going for the same urinal at the Yankees Game. Yes YES YES, I was the one who forgot we were on speaker during a conference call when I told that joke about my um...past manager. But that was before HDTV, and Satellite Radio. I have a new life, new friends and all 2 of them are on my YAHOO 360 page. I just wish someone else in the world knew about it too.
