—-A phone conversation—-
Me : We had an awesome time, didn’t we?
Friend 1: Ya. We should have such reunions regularly.
Me : Hmmm…but if we meet regularly, we cant call it a reunion. Anyway, send me the snaps. Dying to see them.
Friend 1: Sure.
—-After a week, again over the phone—-
Me : Where are the snaps?
Friend 1: You didn’t see them yet? I have it in facebook. The photos have received some amazing comments too, especially yours.
Me : I am not in Facebook. Don’t you know that ?
Friend 1: Uh Oh. Then, open an account soon.
Me : Nahh, I don’t want to get into that mess. Upload in Picasa and send the link, na?
Friend 1: Upload? I don’t find time for all those.
Me : But you had time to upload it in Facebook. Cmon, how long is it going to take?
Friend 1: Its too difficult and I don’t even know anything about Picasa.
Me : Ok, atleast send those pics of mine as an attachment in a mail, will ya?
Friend 1: Hmm…opening an FB account is easier than that.
Me : Don’t I have a right to see my own snaps? You don’t understand. I don’t want to open an account in Facebook. Please attach them and…
Friend 1 : Heyy..gotta hang up now. See ya.
Me : 😦
—-Another phone conversation—-
Friend 2 : How come you didn’t comment on any of my photos yet?
Me : Photos? Where? You don’t blog, do you ?
Friend 2 : I don’t. I am referring to my Facebook pics.
Me : LOL, that’s because I am not in Facebook.
Friend 2 : Stop joking.
Me : Honest, I dont have an account in Facebook. I am in Orkut and I am very busy with my blogs. So, no FB for me.
Friend 2 : You, of all people, don’t have a FB account and you expect me to believe that? And you are the most networking person I am aware of. I guess, you didn’t add me yet and you are trying to find an excuse now. Probably, you have the account active for your dear and near ones and I don’t feature anywhere in that list.
Me : Grrrrrr……. I AM NOT IN FACEBOOK !!!
Friend 2 : Ok, enough, dont lie. Add me whenever you feel like. Bye.
Me : Sigh 😦
—-Over the phone again (I should throw my phone somewhere)—-
Me : Congrats!!!! So, I am officially an uncle now, eh?
Sis : Yes, you are.
Me : Ok, send me her pics when you take them.
Sis : They are already on Facebook.
Me : Yeah, but you know, right? I am not in Facebook. Send them to my mail, please.
Sis : Ok. But, you know what, even your dad opened an FB account to see her pics.
Me : Whaaaaat??? My dad too ????
Sis : The whole world is in Facebook, except you !
Me : I know 😦
—At my uncles place—
Bro : and your reply was the best.
Uncle : I know. He deserves it. I normally don’t go for such debates. But he asked for it this time.
Me : 🙄
Bro : Yeah, nobody likes him. He picks up arguments just like that.
Uncle : I could understand that from his character.
Me : 🙄 🙄
Bro : We would always wait for his status updates to pounce on him. Totally crazy stuff!
Me : Ok ok, time out !!! what the hell are you guys talking about ?
Bro : Oh nothing. Theres this guy who updates his Facebook wall with crazy status messages. Once he wrote something on Indian army and he got it left, right and center from uncle.
Uncle : ya, he didn’t know he was messing around with a Lt.Col.
Me : You guys are having a lot of fun there without me; how could you ??
Bro : Did anybody stop you from joining Facebook?? So uncle, where were we?? Aaah…that guy. You should’ve given him some more, uncle.
Me : 🙄 🙄 🙄
On Jan 1st 2011 at home
Dad : Daa, teach me how to use Facebook. I have been getting friend requests, donno what to do with them. Also, upload some of my snaps over there.
Me : I am not in Facebook, I cant help you. I can give it a try though!
Dad : Ninakku Onnum Ariyilla (It literally means ‘You don’t know anything’ but when my dad uses that phrase, it means ‘You are totally useless!’)
Me : Waaaaaahhhhh……!!
—After a few mins—
Me (to myself) : Thats it !!!!
And folks, thats how I got face-booked!
