I used to be able to think. Now everything thinks for me.
I used to read a map to get to an unfamiliar location. Now Siri tells me where to turn.
I used to look up information in an encyclopedia when I didn’t know something, now I just google it.
I used to turn my neck around and use my car’s side mirrors to back up, now I just use my backup camera.
I used to have to get out of my car to open my garage door, now I just press a button.
I used to get up off the couch to change the channel, now I have 4 remotes with buttons on them. I have no idea what they do.
I used to be able to boil an egg, now I buy hardboiled eggs at the grocery store.
I used to remember important events in my kids’ lives, so I could tell my friends, now my friends on FACEBOOK tell me about my kids.
I used to know my way to the mall, but now I just click keys on my laptop and Amazon delivers everything I want to my front door.
I used to know how to sign my name on a check, but now my CHIP signs for me.
I used to push a cart around the grocery store to pick up the food I needed for the week, now I order online, and drive up to the curb and pick up my groceries. I may soon pay the extra and get it delivered to my door.
I used to call a friend, now I simply text them.
I used to know everyone’s phone number by heart, now I ask Alexa to call them for me.
I used to lose my keys and have to remember where they were, now I have a FOB that starts my car for me.
I used to have to calculate how much fabric I needed to make a quilt, now I have an app for that.
I used to be able to determine how far I walked each week by keeping a log sheet on my refrigerator, now my FITBIT does that for me.
I’m pretty sure the day will come when our doctor will tell us we don’t need our brain anymore. Kinda like our appendix or tonsils. Totally unnecessary.
I wonder if my FITBIT can calculate how many months it’ll be before I’ll be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Let me Google that.
I’d sign this, but I forgot my name!
