Don't know why - it really has no bearing on much, but I like it when somebody chooses to "Like" one of my posts. Maybe it is the petting of my ego , maybe just knowing that somebody else has the same opinion or sense of humor. I don't really know. It doesn't really matter. I admit that I don't throw the "likes" around much myself. I don't really think about it much, but when my alerts pop up and I see new "likes" I have to click on them just to see what was "Liked". Am I truly a self indulgent weirdo - or do others feel the same?? Jags - with 494 likes. (Please do not take this as an opportunity to bomb my alert box - really).
