How things have changed

Something funny happened today that got me thinking: I was talking to my aunt and she asked me if I was going to be writing today. As she said that she gestured with her hand as if holding a pen and writing on a piece of paper. It was a little thing, but it made me realize that when I think of a hand gesture to signify ‘writing’ I no longer think in terms of pen and paper, I think in terms of typing.

When did my mind make that switch? I don’t know, but I have to admit that the realization caught me somewhat off guard.
