Trolling My Newsfeed
I really dislike that I feel that I use Facebook to write to mom.
I see that she likes my posts, react to them. and writes a trite
response to them every now and then.
The other day I decided to share an article so my mom can see it.
The article was about Israeli people going to Sinaii for the Holiday.
I shared it after I got home from my parents' place because I did
not like the way my mom had wanted to take care of me as if I was
a kid and not the middle-aged man I am. I don't have a car, so I took
a bus to celebrate the new year, but since the buses don't work on Saturdays
and holidays, I agrred to sleep in their home. But, the next day my
brother in law came and he suggested that they take me home, but they would
probably drop me off somewhere from where I can walk home. But my mom said
"you're not going to walk". Well, she cares about me and I 'preciare that.
(I've taken the word "'preciate" from George Thompson's book Verbal Judo;
'preciate does not mean appreciate.)
What the futz! I hate it! I see friends of mine share the distances they
have run, and what do I have? A mother who takes care of me like a kid?
Well, I got pissed, and my father told me to calm down as if you can just
give me orders on how to feel.
I wanted to use Facebook to punish my mom for caring about me so much,
but the ten commandments read "Honour thy father and thy mother", and if
I pulblished what I think directly, I would find myself attacked by people
who agree with the commandment without anyone to advocate me. For my defense,
I guess I would have to hire some lawyer. So, I'd decided toshare the
article that pisses many citizens off, and added my words about going there
instead of spending holidays the traditional way.
Shortly, came my mom response about them (she and others) not leaving the
country, to which I've responding that I do not promise to stay in my
comfort zone. I hope the next time no parents will think of vetoing the
way I want to go home. They shouldn't have such veto rights because I'm an
