This Is Definitely Not Food Related

Is that ok? After posting about my problems with word verification, I found this post, "Senior Citizens and Technology", on another blog. The reason it's so funny to me is because, although I'm not quite as bad as this particular blogger's parents, I could be. If I didn't have computer, digital, video, cable and text-savvy kids, I would be completely lost.

Don't tell my aunt I told you this. But when she heard her daughter tell her other daughter that she would fax a recipe* to her, she said, "Oh, could you fax that to me, too?" She had no fax machine or even a computer. And she had no idea that you NEEDED an actual fax machine to send or receive faxes.

Thanks, Cuz, for ratting out your poor mother.

*See, I got food in here, after all.

Stop laughing at your aunt!

Hi Cynthia,
Yeah, I'm bad. I haven't heard from her yet, but I'm not too worried. She does have a computer now, but it takes her awhile to get on the "intercom".

Yes, my aunt did make that fax remark for real, BUT she actually is online all the time and she's quite good on the computer. I think a lot of older people realize that it's a wonderful way to keep in touch. Of course, she's probably not speaking to me now...
