Picture this, It is 2005 and my parents decide it's time to join the revolution, as if this little fad called the internet might just stick around for a bit.
So i do the research, find a friendly affordable lap top for Mom and dad (let me just say I'm Jealous by the way) and the package arrived Friday afternoon. My mom calls me in glee, there is a mouse in my house---EEEEK. When I ask her where it is, she explains between the front door and the screen. I said well just wait till dad gets home to get it for you......where as she said it comes with batteries, then I can hear her rolling in laughter as if no one has ever heard such a Mouse joke. I love my mom, more than life itself, but she is just not technically savvy.
Saturday the computer came, and my life as I know it will never be the same. I went over to help set up programs such as Nortons, AOL, firewall etc and my mom wants nothing to do with anything else but, "playing poker on the web, oh and I know that web means world wide web now, your 7 year old son taught me!"
God love her. I tried to show her how to use email, and how to talk in IM,but no, I suck at teaching computers. Nevermind I go to peoples home and show them the basics, and I mean basics of getting around online.
I know I should not be writing this about my Mom, but I know she'll never be able to find this :)
(In case you do find this, someone hacked into my computer and wrote this. P.S. Ill explain hacking to you another day!!)
