It’s weird when you talk to family or friends online when you’ve only spoken to them in person before. Or finally talking to someone in person that you’ve only ever talked to online before.
My brothers are on Facebook. One sounds so much like himself even there. The other sounds like a complete stranger. It’s a little surreal. Then I realized that I haven’t spoken to either one — in person or otherwise — in ages. It’s a wonder they don’t both sound odd to me. I’m a little afraid to talk to them like I normally would online. I mean, I’m much the same person in person that I am online but they haven’t encountered either me in ages. And I’m not the little sister they might remember.
