Hi, I’m Frank. And I’m a Twitterholic. I’ve been clean for about…35 minutes. It’s a hard battle that I’m facing hour to hour. Everytime I see a something out of the ordinary, I have the strongest urge to stop what I’m doing and get on my phone to tweet txt or rush home to tell everyone what I just saw.
I know I have a problem. And that’s the first step. Now, how did I get here? It started out simple. I’d say “hey, this movie rocks, check it out.” But it was just downhill from there. I was sitting in Church, and the Reverend was speaking a passage when all of a sudden he said “cock” (as in referring to a rooster). A click open and several taps later and on my twitter account was, “LOL HE JUST SAID COCK! [as in referring to a rooster, but the juxtaposition of the person and the word taken out of context made it "lol-worthy"]”
I pressed send, and I looked at my phone. “Was this a sign of things to come?” I pondered to myself. “No. It’s just a one-time deal. It’ll never happen again.” Of course I lied to myself. Upon watching The Day the Earth Stood Still, I tweeted no less than 20 times. For those of you with a calculator, that’s one tweet per six minutes. Examples of said tweets:
“OMG NEO! WHOA, NEO!”
“NEO’S AN ALIEN? WTF?!”
“MAMA BOUCHER IS THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE? WTFWTFWTF?!?!?!”
Although, in my defense, it was the only way to make the film entertaining. I’m not saying it gives me the right, but….it’s hard, you know? It’s a long battle. I have to realize that when I see a carnival on the road, I have to dial a friend’s number to tell him/her about what I just saw, and not just put it out there on the interwebs.
Now to repost this on my Tumblr….brb.
