The temptation was almost too much. Uber son had posted on Facebook his plans to take a trip--to be specific, to take himself and his family to Colonial WIlliamsburg, a destination that lies well beyond his home in the Northeast and just a little beyond ours in the Mid Atlantic.
He was asking his FB friends and acquaintances for travel tips--where to eat, where to stay in Williamsburg. Paterfamilias was ready to join in. "I was going to say, 'Hey, there's free room and board at your old homestead--and the food's good, too.' Then I thought better of it."
Good for you PF. Second-thinking is just the ticket. What could be worse than horning in on a social media site read by a grownchild's friends and business acquaintances with a less-than-helpful remark--and one that borders on inducing guilt.If we've got something to say, email, phone calls or a quick text is the preferred method--unless the FB account is for family only. Then no holds are barred. Even for us.
