Remember when “De-Friending” wasn’t a word?

A few years ago, I was in this girl’s wedding. I don’t really know why she asked me to be her bridesmaid. I wasn’t very good friends with her, but she was a friend of the family and, I mean, how do you say no to someone who asks you to be in her wedding?

Her wedding turned out to be The Worst Wedding In The World. I’m not going to go into details right now because, well, there are just too many of them. But take everything terrible you can imagine about being a bridesmaid, multiply it by 100, add some little people as the “entertainment” (no, I am not making that up), and you will start to get an idea of just how terrible this wedding was.

It’s been about 2 years since her wedding. We’ve barely spoken since then, but we have stayed friends on Facebook. And if there is anything in the world worse than her wedding, it’s her status updates. Since her wedding, she’s taken after her husband and become a fundamentalist Christian. Opinions on religion aside, I think it’s more than a little weird to proselytize via Facebook status. It soon became apparent that stands she for everything I’m against, on a political, ethical and moral level. But I couldn’t look away. Her updates got so ridiculous that I soon found myself checking her profile every day, just to see what new moronic thing she had come up with.

Then, one day, her profile page disappeared. And I realized that she defriended me. SHE defriended ME. I felt outraged. I was in her wedding, I stood next to her when she married her husband, and, as far as she knows, I have done nothing to her at all. And she defriended me.

At first I wanted to send her a message expressing my disgust, calling her out for being classless and rude and generally awful. I wanted to tell her everything bad about her wedding and about her life and her grammar skills. I was fuming. But then, eventually, I calmed down. I realized I was being ridiculous, and that I was getting upset about someone who was no longer part of my life. And all because I lost the ability to make fun of her on Facebook, which, when you think about it, is completely absurd.

I think I’m over this girl. More importantly, I think I’m over Facebook.
