A Short Story about Seaweed

A while back one of my friends posted a status that included the hastag #wraphiminseaweed. Because he wanted sushi for dinner.
Subtle much?

In said status he requested, nay – implored his friends to incorporate this hashtag into their statuses as a way to convince his wife to buy said sushi for said dinner.

Knowing this wouldn’t work (because his wife is impervious to peer pressure) we all did it anyway. But you know what did happen?

I started craving sushi. As did all my friends. So guess what we all had for dinner that night?


All the sushi!

There is definitely something here about the power of social media and peer pressure. I will ponder this for a while and write something more philosophical later.
