You know you are living in 2006.

I received the following message this morning. It could be that there was similar list for the 2005. but nevertheless…

You know you are living in 2006. if:

  1. You accidentally enter your password on the microwave
  2. You haven’t been playing Solitaire with a real cards in years
  3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3
  4. You are sending an e-mail to a person sitting next desk to you
  5. Your main reason for not staying in touch with your family and friends is that they don’t have e-mail addresses
  6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries
  7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen
  8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn’t have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.
  9. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee
  10. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )
  11. You’re reading this and nodding and laughing
  12. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message
  13. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list
  14. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a #9 on this list
  15. Now you’re laughing at yourself : )
