    IN 2012 when...

    1. You accidentally
    enter your PIN on the microwave.

    2. You haven't
    played solitaire with real cards in years.


    3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers
    to reach your family of three.

    4. You e-mail the person who
    works at the desk next to you.

    5. Your reason for not staying in touch
    with friends and family is that they
    don't have e-mail addresses.

    6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your
    cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you
    carry in thegroceries...

    7. Every commercial on television
    has a web site at the bot tom of the screen

    8. Leaving the house without your cell phone,
    which you didn't even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and
    you turn around to go and get it

    10. You get up in the morning and go on line
    before getting your coffee

    11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

    12 You're reading this and
    nodding and laughing.

    13. Even worse, you know exactly
    to whom you are going to forward this message.

    14. You are too busy
    to notice there was no #9 on this list.

    15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list
    .

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused!" (Unknown Author)
