Wine: Bringing UsTogether on Social Media

I am that person. I guess I've earned it and maybe even worked hard for it. Or my liver has. But I am that person who, when people that I haven't seen since high school or possibly only know VIA FACEBOOK, think of ME when they see, say a lawn chair wine glass holder, a bathtub wine glass holder, an article about how drinking a glass of red wine is equivalent to working out for an hour (this is TOTES true BTW), and post it on my page. I mean, I guess I have really established myself as a wino on social media. But I suppose when you have a blog entitled momwhodrinksandcusses you really aren't trying to hide anything are you?

So no- I'm not offended, I'm rather touched, and I guess I could be known for worser things. At least people think of me. Any press is good press? Social media, if it has one great quality, truly has the ability to bring people together that otherwise would never meet or never see each other again in their lifetime. (Of course due to recent events we know it can tear people apart too.  I have a "friend" that I met through blogging, and now keep in touch via Facebook, who is one of my 80s rock n roll soul sisters, that I have NEVER met in person, but I really think I will someday. I am now amused daily by a guy from high school that I probably didn't say two words to while we were in school together. I'm also able to connect with my kids' friends parents this way - it's like a private look into each others' lives where we can determine if we need or want to ask each over other for drinks or just drop the kids off and leave it at that. Or if we even want to let our kids hang out at all...  

So no matter how many annoying fresh-Botox selfies and statements on "blessed"-ness I must endure, I think social media, if used in a semi-mature way, really can bring people together. And for me it usually  starts with wine...

Cheers people!
