Friends, Fans and Followers….

Those three words have many meanings in today’s world and it all depends on how you see it… Friends can be online that I have never met before in my life or they can be people that I actually know… Okay, my online friends are more than my real-life friends, but who’s counting (not me!) I still like my real-life friends, so no worries here friends!!

Though the question could be asked if the people we know in real-life are really friends or are they acquaintances, because I don’t think these two words are really differentiated from each other nowadays; everyone is simply a friend…….

Fans on the other hand are those who find someone or something cool and always want to know what is going on with their fan…. But then again aren’t my online friends in my fan club???? This is all soooo confusing but who cares is my moto!!!

Followers are the same as fans as I see it even though you can see that they may have clicked on the follow button of some social website or so… I am still having a bit of trouble here now that I have written friends, fans and followers ….. they simply are all the same; whether I know you or not….

So, all friends, fans and followers… Have a great last couple of days in 2017 and lots of luck, health and happiness for 2018!!

Soccer Mania

The soccer excitement is still going strong in some countries but my guy is devastated because his countries team lost to Italy turning his life into a disaster.. the perils of being a soccer fan!

Yesterday seemed as if the world had ended even though we had nice weather outside. But the loosing of his team brought a dark cloud over our house and he and his buddies sat there in the living room with water in their eyes. A very moving moment for anyone looking at them all there in my living room.
I could be a wise guy and say “ I wish I filmed it”, but that’s being a bit harsh on them.

I sympathize with them all but somehow I cannot get so emotional about the whole thing – maybe this is a guy thing and gals just aren’t tuned into such things when it comes to soccer matches. I really don’t know.

But anyways; there’s a cute turtle that was to forecast which team would win and he seemed to get a bit sidetracked with the passing away of his cousin the 100 year old turtle and forgot all about predicting which team would win.
Maybe that’s why the team didn’t win because “schröte” was so slow getting around to thinking about which team would win.
A very disappointing fact for “Schröte” fans. Then to top it off “Schröte” got plastered too, and so I think this could be the end of his career as a turtle reporter and forecaster, because he didn’t concentrate on his job and let emotions & alcohol take over.

But other countries can rejoice in the fan fair on the weekend with the climax of which team will win, and of course my guy will be watching glued to the TV set watching the game as a discerning living room spectator.

But I wonder will “Schröte” the turtle predict which team will win? I am sitting on the edge of my chair waiting patiently for his prediction. I love soccer and it’s turtle!
