You know you're overwhelmed if…

I have a Facebook page, along with 15 umpteen million other people.

Over the past week, I’ve seen several of my friends post on groups entitled “You know you grew up in (such and such town) if…” or “You know you attended School XYZ if..”.  They’re cute and kind of fun. I was invited to two of them.

I noticed a distinct lack of one for the town I grew up in near St. Paul, Minnesota. So, I created a group called “You know you grew up in (insert my hometown here) if…”.  In 36 hours, I’ve accumulated 700 members and almost as many posts! This is crazy! Fun, but crazy!

Classmates are confessing pranks from twenty-plus years ago, resulting in many of those 700 people saying “That was YOU?”. Old friends are being reunited and many, many, memories are being drudged up again.

The only problem is, that at a rate of one join every five minutes, I’m getting slightly overwhelmed already! Who knew so many people wanted to talk about one small town in Eastern Minnesota!
