He Still Uses AOL

My dad is, well, kinda slow to catch on to the latest technological trends.

For the past 10 years, his various computers have essentially existed only as very expensive games of solitaire.

Recently, he has taken up email forwarding.  Remember when people sent forwards ALL THE EFFING TIME?

That’s my dad.  Stuck in 1998.

He also just learned to text message.

He’s rad.

    Is AOL like prodigy….I still use prodigy for everything version 1.1….I still have my IBM computer with a 25 MG processor. it has 10 Mg’s of Ram…super fast for 1993!

    HA HA HA!

    Tell your pops i give him props for trying to learn how to operate this stuff. My parents don’t even know how to get on their computer. I think they bought it just to look more technology savvy.
