Nadal Is My Facebook Friend
But my newest "friends" are my Facebook friends. Some are people I went to high school with. A few I actually knew and hung out with during the 70's, but many are people who had the good sense to steer away from me in the 70's. It would be hard to actually label what I was like back then....not really smart enough to be a geek, not really liked enough to be popular....words like awkward, weird, odd come to mind. I don't think I had grown into my shoes yet, so to speak. That happened in college and beyond for me. Nevertheless, I love to talking to and hearing about these high school classmates lives' now.
One of my newest "friends" is Rafael Nadal...you know...the tennis player. Yeah, we are good buds. In fact, he just sent me a video clip and although it's not in English, I am pretty sure that loosely translated, he's saying, "thanks to his new older, American Facebook friend, Beth Southworth, that he was able to pull out that last third set to make it to the French Open finals!!" He was smiling and was wearing that adorable three-colored shirt that I told him he looked HOT in. We are almost an item now, except I love my husband and all.
The bottom line for relationships is that you just have to be completely honest and forthcoming about what's what between two people. You have to give as much of yourself (...call me, Rafael!) and be helpful and useful to the other person. And then you will be living a life worth living.
