When I was a kid I didn’t understand a lot of things about nutrition or how humans worked. I was sure I could avoid the whole pooping problem by just drinking milk and never eating solid food. I never tried it though. McNuggets were too delicious.
There was a weird transition time where some bills were easily paid online and some had to be mailed in. I even remember a few that charged a “convenience fee” to pay your bill electronically. It took until 2011 for my last straggling utility bill to catch up and go online. As a side effect I don’t pay attention to my mail as much as I used to. So important things can sneak by.
Back when my son was born I didn’t get much of that magical thing called sleep. I would wake up in the living room with him asleep in my arms and figure out what time it was based on what show was on the TV. Occasionally I was really thrown off because I would be watching the nightly news program and expect David Letterman to come on next. Instead I would get an infomercial because I was actually watching the 3AM repeat of the news. It must be embarrassing to be a superhero that sees an emergency happening on the 3AM news and show up to the scene hours too late.
Now that hand held computers are so common I imagine we are moving into a world filled with many more minor distraction related accidents. Burned the eggs because you were checking your email. Stepped on the dog because you were watching a cat video. Hit your head on the door jamb because you were reading webcomics.
