Disclaimer: I already know what I’m going to do. I’m just curious, not least because I’m still feeling my way around Facebook.
Friends just had a baby. They posted a photo with the full name and time of birth.
When I opened the reply box, I first thought, “We all knew you had it in you.”
Then I thought, “Nah, it’s not the right time to be clever.” So I posted a brief congratulations.
Then I decided I would going to go back in a little while and add, “Oh, and to quote Dorothy Parker, ‘We all knew you had it in you.’ :)”
Then I thought I’d ask the SD how they think it would have been if I’d started with the Parker quote, without the first reply as a buffer. Would it be offensive, funny or other?
