The Kindergartener's Guide to Social Media

"You better watch out! I'll facebook you!!" Caed shouted to Dani, pointing his wrist "spy" watch at her.

"Nooo! I don't MANT (want) you to pacebook me!" his sister objected.

"Where did you hear that?" I quizzed. "Do you even know what that means?"

"Of course I do, Mom. It's not mean to say. I heard you and Daddy talking, and you said you were going to facebook him. And I know what facebooking is. It's when you put somebody's face in a book."

{Facebook: When you put someone's face in a book. In context: "Come here so I can smush your face into this copy of Social Networking for Dummies. See also: Literary Faceplant}

I didn't ask Caed for clarification. I just laughed and thought to myself, "I have to remember to post that on Facebook."

As an aside--this morning I discovered one more way we old geezers can use Facebook, besides to constantly overshare the cuteness that is our children or to let 250+ people (who could most certainly not care less) know what we had for lunch and whether or not our headache is gone. Are you ready? To help find a plumber. Yep, thanks to some quick responses to a status update requesting plumber recommendations, we averted a flooding disaster and lived to tell the tale...on Facebook, of course. Where else would we tell it?
