How do you know things and tell others?
How do you know you are living now, in this actual era? Well, there are tell-tale signs.
It’s been awhile since we took a lighter view of some aspects of our lifestyles.
So, how do we know we are living in this year, what are the features of this age that defines us?
1… You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.
2… You haven’t played Solitaire with real cards in years.
3… You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three..
4… You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
5… Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don’t have e-mail addresses.
6… You pull up in your own driveway and use your mobile phone, to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the shopping…
7… Every advert on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen
8… Leaving the house without your mobile phone, which you didn’t even 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
10… You get up in the morning and go on line, even before getting your coffee
11… You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : )
12… You’re reading this and nodding, and laughing.
13… Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.
14… You are too busy to notice there was no 9 on this list.
15… You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn’t a 9 on this list.
Some other interesting ‘how do you know …?’ ideas:

How to Know If You’re Ready to Move In Together is pretty self evident.
How Do You Know If You’re Wealthy? and How Do You Know If You’re Rich are also about the obvious – lifestyle living and investment choices.
