My favorite part of facebook, aside from getting to look at pictures of myself or at pictures of BFD, is “People You May Know.”

Today, for the first time, “X,” my former friend popped up.  We have someone in common, so I am only surprised it had not happened earlier.

I checked out his profile, open to me since we share a network and felt . . . nothing.  No sense of loss, no sadness, no anger.  Just nothing.  All I thought was “huh.”   He’s still a rock star.  He has an attractive girlfriend.  He seems exactly as he was before, but with slightly more ink.

It’s nice to know he’s alive, I suppose, but I just feel nothing.

To me, he is just a stranger, someone I once knew.
