Facebook is like high school all over again...

I have a facebook friend (old friend from elementary school) who gets at least 10 comments on anything she posts. Her kid was going to his first soccer game and this got a score of likes and several "That's so cool!!!!!!!". Seriously? Normally I just ignore it, whatever. Now I'm actually asking my real friends if anyone want to join me in a sewing class one night, and I'm getting crickets. I thought a few people might be interested....
The kicker is that I won this class in a contest the sewing shop was holding (this is a hip, young mama sewing space, no blue hairs). I won a class for me and a friend. Woo hoo! My husband suggested I ask without mentioning the free part to see who is really interested in the class. Apparently no one is. Whoosh I'm back in high school, fidgeting with my gym uniform as everyone else in the class gets picked before me for volleyball teams. Our yoga moms playgroup has about 8 of us in it. A lot of people get together outside of the group. I rarely get invited to these offshoot get togethers. I've always has a tough time making friends, I don't get it.

I wonder if I should mention the free part. Then maybe I'd get some friends who want to do something with me.


Oh yeah, I was COOL in high school. This is my tap/jazz dance group.

I would ABSOLUTELY join you, except the four-hour flight would be killer.

I'm with mommybyday- I'd totally come, but my flight would be more like 10 hours. Actually I don't know how long, but it's a ways :)

I would totally go too! And I'm the closest by plane too! However, the cost of the ticket would kind of cancel out the free lesson! :) But I hope you find someone to go with. I hate shit like that!! Blah!!

Thanks ladies!

Oh by the way, Spokeit, I don't live in the Arctic circle. It's a 12 drive from your house to mine, not a 10 hour flight!

Oh and I found someone to go with me...a friend from high school! Oh the irony!
