When reading someone’s post we often don’t realize what’s going on around their computer. They may have popcorn cooking in the microwave. Maybe they’re watching another episode of CSI while listening to the latest Nickelback album. Or in this case, they may be spending time with their beloved pet. Here we see Destiny wishing her best friend a happy birthday. She’s currently speaking to her about her financial issues on the phone (which she will soon discover once she views her Facebook page). Destiny is also anxiously awaiting this afternoon in which she and “Harry” will ride in a “Mexicano Mobilleee”. But what we’re not seeing, being the quiet internet observer, is that Ballsac Sacajaweaa is perched upon her keyboard watching his beloved owner type her love and devotion to “Harry.” You see, Ballsac is the name of her hamster who does in fact have a very pronounced scrotum. So pronounced mind you, that it lays quietly on the caps lock key – its owner oblivious in her current state of loving bliss.
It’s not uncommon that many of us forget what the “www” stands for at the beginning of a web address. To refresh your memory it means, “World Wide Web”. That’s right. The Internet is accessible WORLD WIDE. To the far reaches of our beloved planet, the Internet has sunk its claws deep into any patch of land it finds. And here, it has found Jasmine. Most likely, you and I will never run into Jasmine. Her exact location probably could not be discovered even by Google Earth. You see, she lives in a world that fantasies are made of. In fact, if you were to peruse her friends list on Facebook, you’d find that they are all animals. Yes, she lives with Mr. Cat. She takes a daily stroll with Mrs. Wolf and she buys groceries from Mr. Cow. To post on Facebook that someone has tried to steal her baby egg, may in fact seem lame to readers like you and I. But for Jasmine, it’s just another day spending time on her social networking.
