Today, I logged onto Facebook and saw this rather lengthy status update from ACOS:
"I am about to do a mass delete of my Facebook friends. I have a large number of friends from an online game that I no longer play because it is a massive time-suck [I'm paraphrasing] that has caused me to neglect my wife, children--a second one was apparently born sometime in the last seven months and I didn't even realize it! Her name is Abigail--and job--suppliers have threatened to break my legs if I don't remit payment in the next four minutes [I may be embellishing]. Anyway, I'm getting rid of all these online friends, but, if you're reading this, it's because I don't want to delete you, SO, if you don't see another status update from me in the next hour or so, I probably deleted you accidentally. Just send me a friend request if that happens."
Now, ACOS is an intelligent sort. He has an MBA. He's actually one of those "job-creators" we've all heard so much about lately (as opposed to the rest of us, who, I guess, are "job-doers"--but I digress). I mention that so you will have the proper context for his NEXT status update, posted about thirty minutes later:
"Deletion done. If you don't see this status, please let me know."
