Guest post written by my buddy Angelo Cooper
My wife is obsessed with Facebook. I simply do not understand why she gets so enraptured in the lives of people she barely knows. I am in education, and I do not have a Facebook page so that I do not have to worry about students trying to connect with me outside of school. It is not that I do not like my students, but I have heard of too many stories about teachers who have had inappropriate relationships with students outside of school. I make sure that I could never even be accused of inappropriate activity. I keep my private and professional lives completely separate. My wife, on the other hand, is always on Facebook. She can spend hours on this website, jumping from page to page and picture to picture. She often ends up on the photos of people with whom we have not spoken in years, and I am constantly making fun of her weird hobby. She always says that she is just curious, but I cannot relate to that level of curiosity. We recently switched internet providers, and I was able to find a CLEAR internet provider in my area. For one week until we had the new internet up and running, my wife was without Facebook. I was not sure she was going to make it.
