Several months ago I received a surprise friend request on FB from an old boyfriend. I haven't spoken to him in over 20 years so it was a bit of a shock. I waited a week and then, in a moment of gin-soaked weakness, I accepted. He didn't have much on his wall which is no surprise since he (like me) is an Old. No harm no foul, right? WRONG, my friends. So much wrong.

A week ago I started seeing strange posts from him on my feed. Like 9-11 conspiracy theory stuff notched up 10 degrees. He's now started sending me messages wanting to discuss the "coming global apocalypse".

  1. Unfriend and block.
  2. Never, ever friend after the first drink.
