Do you Gram?
Twenty plus years ago the company my husband works for gave all its employees a computer. He received a monitor, keyboard and a tower. We set it up, turned it on and sent emails to our friends and family. We thought we were the shit! Some time around there I also got my first cell phone. It was big, but came in a bag that I could carry with me… Best thing ever!!
Somewhere along the line, the smaller the computers got the more stupid I became! Technology is progressing so fast today it feels like it is leaving those of us that are middle aged or older behind! Insta, the gram, Tik Tok, snap, is the norm for the younger generations while I am left wondering what the fuck it is and how to use it. I really thought that “Netflix and chill” was just watch a movie on the couch with my family. Imagine my child’s face when I told his friends that his dad and I were going to go home to “Netflix and chill”. I dont even what to talk about the time I sent my boss an eggplant emoji stating I was bringing a big hot pan of eggplant Parmesan to the pot luck!
So now I stick to old peoples technology. Facebook, which my kids say 40+ year old drinking moms use to stalk people in their neighborhood or to set up wine drinking parties. Texting, which has been replaced by snap chat. BTW, no way I am taking that many pictures of myself with no bra and a double chin. and YES! I still email!
I figure I made it this long not knowing what a plugin is (or how to install one for that matter) I will survive doing what i’m doing as long as I can ask a millennial for help when I need it, after they rolls their eyes at me of course. And if I text someone that I’m enjoying a rum & cum (damn you auto correct), that is OK, people know I’m to old to deal anyway.
