Mom joins facebook

My mom joined facebook this summer. My family thought it would be a nice communication solution since she lives in a small town in Mexico where it can sometimes be difficult to reach her by phone.

Then the comments started rolling in:

It’s in Spanish. Just trust me, it says nice things.

At first it was sweet, but eventually I was clearing my wall about twice a day.  Fortunately, as she became more familiar with facebook, she learned about private messaging. The downside: She became more familiar with facebook.

Here are a few of her most popular posts (with translations in captions):

Translation: HOW WAS YOUR FIRST DAY AS A TEACHER?

Translation: NICK OWES ME MUFFINS!

She wrote: QUE SORPREDIDA!  Translation: How surprised! *Note: this one got a few likes.

She wrote: QUIEN ES ESE OMBLIGON MIJA.   Translation: Honey, who is this big-belly-button man?

I’m beginning to think she is in on the joke. Either way,I might start a twitter account.
