well, i’m confused.
- when was our love lost, Walker?
Walker Evans is the most popular man on the Internet. We used to be friends on Facebook. He even friended me after my byline showed up on a less-than-flattering portrait of him and his friends back in May. I thought that was big of him.
So, we were Facebook friends and it was cool. He was always the guy who showed up as a “common friend.” No matter who you clicked on, Walker Evans had already friended that person. It made me feel like social networking was a place where even people with differing opinions could get along and receive frequent status updates.
Then one day when I received another evite to a Columbus Underground meet-up, I noticed that I now had the option of adding Walker as a friend. What?! I thought we were already friends?
How did this happen? What did I do wrong? Maybe he mistakenly erased me? Should I send another request? Would that be too sad and desperate?
I was really upset initially, so I removed myself from the Columbus Underground Facebook group. I’m not sure my bold act of defiance was even noticed.
And how am I still getting all these meet-up invites?
There are so many questions.
Walker reiterated over and over again that he likes me, even though I can assume a “TOP” persona. All of our correspondence has contained pleasant winkie-faces and cordial emoticons. Was this all a scam? Is he mad because I called him a “print journalist?”
I don’t even know what’s real anymore.
