Ex-ing Season (frivolous)

It's that time of year when photos of me appear on Facebook with more frequency than normal. That isn't to say there aren't photos the rest of the year - there are just more right now.

I do not feel particularly great about the way that I look ever, but this year, it was compounded by Christmas-morning hair and sitting next to a beautiful sister, a possibly ridiculous hat made of gift-wrapping ribbons, and all the things that make people a feel a little more Ugly Duckling than usual.

So tell me something, GroupThink: WHY ARE THE EXES LIKING THIS PHOTO?

There are three of them on Facebook and we snoop (read: I snoop), but we do not interact. The breakups were not friendly, though we "remained friends" so they could continue to make sexual advances until I married and then forget I existed. WHY, ALL OF THE SUDDEN, DO THE THREE OF THEM LIKE THE SAME TWO PHOTOS, LIKE HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPTIC PAST?

Are they liking that I got ugly(ier)?
Are they liking that my hair is bad?
Are they liking my 91 year old grandfather, who is very obviously giving me a noogie?

They don't like the dog photos.
They don't like the wedding photos.
They don't like the photos of me doing what I love at an outdoor concert last fall.

They like the ugly sister PJs with a Christmas ribbon on my head. (Or are they liking my hot sister? Because we have discussed it and there is absolutely zero double-dipping in the gene pool.)

Is this a thing?
