Today our family moved into the modern world. At around 9 this morning a couple of guys knocked on our door, scoped the place out, and began drilling and pounding. When they got done an hour later there was a new wire sticking out of the wall, a square thing mounted on a pedestal on our roof, and marvelous high speed wireless internet flowing through our computers.
Yeah, I’ve been online since the mid-90’s. And living with dialup internet the whole time. But today the light flooded into our little world. it was Christmas in July.
OK, so maybe I am waxing a tad rhapsodic. Internet speed is not everything, after all. But I was pretty thrilled.
It must have been pretty obvious because during breakfast, while the guys were thumping around getting things set up in the computer corner in our living room, my 3 year old looked at me and said, “Mommy, do you love those guys?”
“No!” I hissed whispered, embarrassed.
But she was unconvinced. “Are you going to TISS them??”
At that point I may have stuffed a bite of cereal in her mouth.
For the record, I did NOT ’tiss’ the gentlemen.
But I may have given them my blog card and told them I was so blogging this.
(Safelink Internet: it’s good stuff, peeps.)
