The following is a true story.
So the other night, I was out to dinner with my family. Everyone was there since it was Father’s Day: my brother, his wife, their kids, Mom and Dad, my grandparents.
My brother was telling us that he and his wife are excited about their vacation away from their kids and are staying at the Cosmopolitan. So being the Extreme Foodie that I am, I recommended the Wicked Spoon Buffet:
A bustling culinary food hall, the Wicked Spoon Buffet delivers well-crafted original selections for every appetite. With its mix of top quality, familiar staples in addition to imaginative and seasonal dishes, this Las Vegas eatery will satisfy cravings and invite discovery.
- Fab: It’s brand-new! I recommended it to a good friend of mine who loved it. Said it was great!
Bro: Yeah? Who’s this friend of yours?
Fab: Oh, it’s @letsgolakers086!
Bro: WTF is a @letsgolakers086?
My sis-in-law gives me the Zoolander look.
Then began the awkward pause, and everyone looked at me like I was crazy.
Then out of nowhere my grandfather says, “What about the Lakers? They should have went all the way!”
That was when I realized I blurted out a Twitter friend’s name. It just came out so naturally that I didn’t even think about it.
- Fab: It’s Twitter. Y’know tweeting with people, businesses, consumers… 140 characters.
Bro: WTF is Twitter??
Sis-in-law still looking like Zoolander.
Mom and Dad looked at each other like their kid is on drugs.
Leave it to my grandfather to break the silence again: “Too bad about Kobe and those Lakers.”
It’s been two days since, and I just got a call from Mom asking if everything is OK with me.
I guess not everyone tweets…
