I already told you I own a Fitbit Inspire 2 watch, and I use it to track my workouts and get much needed moral support and slacking tracking.
Here is link to my previous post: Fitbit Inspire2 : was it worth buying?
I also told you a long time ago that I am a class A introvert- meaning no Facebook/tiktok /whatever- I did have an Instagram account back in the days when I started this blog, and thought more people would hear about my writing.
Bear in mind that aside from my daughter- none of my family /friends read what I write- and can’t accidentally find it either- since I do not reveal my identity here- having every intention of writing the truth without any fears -including all kinds of stuff about office politics, friends, my mother, etc.
All the above was essential information needed in order to comprehend the total and utter astonishment I am experiencing the past few months- being flooded with dozens of people sending me “friend requests” on Fitbit.
You’ve probably guessed by now that neither my photo nor any other revealing information is out there on the Fitbit App- I certainly hope their promise that neither weight nor height or workout I logged are being spread around the world as we speak.
Which does raise the question-
Why are these people so eager to be my friends???
I do workout quite nicely- I admit- I am retired and do not have anything going on so working out is really nice-plus I do like the endorphin rush when I finish a good workout- and the feeling I did do something useful with myself- on days that workout isn’t so great.
The thing is- these people are not in on this information supposedly- I don’t share my workouts with anyone, and don’t boast about my “10 hours sleep like a rock last night guys!!!”- mainly because I never sleep for 10 hours, and at my age sleeping like a rock is a non option anyway.
So what is it then?
*Are people in this world that desperate for friends that they would compromise on a total stranger who happens to own a Fitbit watch –knowing full well that’s the only thing they have in common with?
*Is this actually the new meaning of friendship? I don’t need to know you, I don’t need to know anything about you or your life-in fact- these are distractions from the real deal- the fact that we both own the same brand of fitness watch makes us BFF’s forever?
*Maybe this method isn’t so bad after all??
Maybe the mere fact that I bought a certain watch is as good a sign as any sign for “casablanca’s: this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship”?
Because- come to think of it- what exactly consists as a good tell tales of a long lasting friendship?
In my experience it’s basically a matter of decision- meaning that if you decide to stick through bad times -you can last forever-and vice versa.
So you can just as well decide that “fate” had these people buy the same watch- and thus you shall all be great friends forever and ever.
I do wonder.
Enjoy- the cooliflower.
