Status Update: a one sentence poem

Status Up Date

Yesterday, I dropped a jar of minced garlic all over the kitchen floor;

the dog frantically “helped” me clean it up while at the exact same time,

Lincoln was attempting to escape from his highchair;

calamity and chaos erupted in my normally peaceful kitchen,

and in the middle of rescuing my dangling child and sweeping up garlic, all I could think was,

“This will make a great face book status” ;

somehow,  the moments of my life have been degraded to a status bar and the validation of people I would avoid in the grocery store;

Face book asks, “What’s happening, Andrea?” ;

I’d like to know too.
