“The Following” / Memorable Fancies #1605

A friend of mine who’d been FOLLOWing me died a few weeks ago, but he’s still LIKEing my posts every day. I thought he must have written code to accomplish this. Would he LIKE me from the Great Beyond every day to the end of my own life?

But no, last Thursday the LIKEs stopped. He must have programmed them, I thought, to discontinue after a given number of days, or after a certain calendar date. Too bad: I was beginning to appreciate them, coming as they were from a friend whose online ghost had survived his own passing.

But then, this morning, a Comment from him: “you will be FOLLOWing me soon!”
