How to tell if you’ve already had too much of the 21st Century

Here’s how to determine whether you’ve had enough of the 21st century already, even though it’s barely begun.
  • Your daughter just bought a CD of all the records your college roommate used to play.
  • You check the ingredients on a can of chicken noodle soup to see if it contains Echinacea.
  • Your grandmother clogs up your e-mail inbox asking you to send her a JPEG file of your newborn so she can create a screen saver.
  • You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home.
  • Every commercial on television has a website address at the bottom of the screen.
  • You buy a computer and a week later it is out of date and now sells for half the price you paid.
  • The concept of using real money instead of credit or debit to make a purchase is foreign to you.
  • Cleaning up the dining room means getting the fast food bags out of the back seat of your car.
