Today is the day my son was born many, many years ago. I am so pleased with him, how he takes care of me, looks in on me, and buys me techno stuff that he has to teach me to use.
One such item was an iPhone, two years ago, when they were relatively still new on the market, maybe. To this day, I have not learned how to download from the apps store. I did download the King Neptune’s Charter tours, and Craigslist, but anything else was to technical for me.
However, my life was definitely influenced by this gift. You see, I will never forget, after just six months of ownership , one of the features became second nature, an expected techno to work on other things.
You see, I still watch a television that has small screen with a thick back and is heavy to move. One day, on my couch, I reached out with my thumb and forefinger, separating them in the air in an attempt to widen the screen for better viewing.
I felt like an idiot, but laughed just the same.
