Teaching somebody to facebooking is quiet a fun and tedious job at the same time. Here’s my nephew who is 10 years old and wants to learn ‘Facebooking’. When He first uttered those two words ‘fechbuk’ , I was dumbstruck. A kid who hasn’t ridden a tricycle by now ( ok now you are stretching it, he does manage to peddle your age old bicycle-said Voice), is uttering this wretched word. No wonder in few years he would probably know who is Mark Zuckerberg and in what circumstances Facebook was born, remember “Piss off bitch” (or something similar).
Anyway he insists me to open a mail id for him, which I do. ( And as always you would do it on Gmail…. off course! there is no argument on this). Then he logs into ‘Facebook’. (Don’t ask me, how many times he asked me to tell ‘what’s Login, chachu?’). Posted a beautiful picture of his, on the profile page. why you want this pic with all jackets and trousers? I asked. Chachu, there’s a girl in my class, she is very beautiful. I just want to show her this pic. She said she will be my friend. OOoooo MMmmmyyyy Gaaaawwd…. Damn you mark, My nephew is gonna beat you, if you were in his time. He is doing all this to Impress a GIRL. I remember buying a girl a 25 paise Lemon chooce (A small chocolate which taste like lemon) and here is this kid. What shall I teach him, He knows what status is and only needs my help in uploading pics. He has her mail id, searches her, Adds to his list and messages “Hey I am here on Facebook, Accept my friendship” What-a-generation !
I think I need a lesson from him on How to impress girls.
