A coworker has always taken great pride in his refusal to adapt to the digital age. He enjoyed boasting how he was not a ‘computer person’. Lately though, according to his wife, he is slowly being dragged into the 21st Century.

For instance, she laughingly told me, in order to keep up with the Kardashians and not miss any of the important details. he went out and bought a very, very large HDTV. He even bought a smart phone. Well, not too smart of a phone she added. And when he found out that being a touch typist and a good speller was not a prerequisite for texting, he learned how to text.

She told how the other day their daughter texted him to ask some questions about an upcoming event. He texted her back. His message: bck 2 u ltr  can’t tlk now  im driving.

To which I can only add, OMG.
