My husband has officially banned me from joining Foursquare. For those who don’t know what it is, it’s essentially an online program where you “check-in” somewhere, say the Empire State Building, and the program lets all your friends know so that they can be like “hey, I’m by the Empire State Building too, let’s meet up!” (Meeting up with people wherever we go just might be my husband’s personal nightmare and he thinks I overshare online anyway, thus I am prohibited from joining.)
Once you check in somewhere more than anyone else, you become “mayor” of that location. Of course, this really makes me want to do it. There are at least two Starbucks in my vicinity that I feel I can become mayor of by the time this week is over. I can hear my husband saying “I’ll buy you all the Starbucks coffee you want” but it’s kind of not the same, is it? I WANNA BE MAYOR!
