Google, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways

31 Jul

            In a conversation at work yesterday, my friend Chris brought up the subject of Google and what we ever did without it. I started thinking about it last night and I remembered looking up the little girl’s name from Poltergeist while on vacation because we couldn’t remember her name and someone had jokingly said, “Don’t go into the light, Alice! Wait. That’s not right. What’s her name?” (It’s Carrie Ann in case you were wondering. I was.) This is an illustration of what my life was like before Google became my go-to for everything I wonder about:


Me and someone else watching TV….

Me:  I wonder how they do that thing.

Them: What?

Me: I mean, how did they make that thing do that? Don’t you find that thing interesting? Don’t you wonder about the thing?

Them: *Blank stare*

Me: I mean, what if

Them: No. Stop.

Me: *Blinking innocently*

Them: Where did you even come up with that? And why do you care? You are so WEIRD.

Me: *edging away quietly and vowing to never think aloud again*


(I’m not saying this happened.)

(But it totally did.)
