You say cryptic, I say creative. Let’s call the whole thing off.
I do like the term ‘vaguebooking,’ though. It’s real word, too. You’ll find it at urbandictionary.com. They define it as ‘an intentionally vague Facebook status update, that prompts friends to ask what’s going on, or is possibly a cry for help.’
Let’s see if mine fits the bill.
I posted: Just took my own advice. I was right.
Cryptic? Perhaps. Cry for help? Hardly. Eight friends ‘liked’ it with no apparent concern for my health or well-being. No comments or questions…but I’ll tell you what I meant.
A friend was pondering what to eat for lunch. I recommended he order Chinese food, thought about it and then ordered Chinese for myself. I was right — it was awesome.
And sure, I could have said that in a very straightforward way in my status update…but it would have been BORING.
Wasn’t my way more fun?
I think so.
