You know you're in 2006 when...

I received this email this afternoon from a student at Harvard University:

Hi Allie,

My mom is standing outside your window but doesn’t know which one is your apartment (she doesn’t know your last name…)

Can you let her in?

Cheers,
Rowan

Indeed, my friend had been standing outside my house trying to remember which one was mine and she couldn't get in to knock on my door because my dog wouldn't let her the yard. So she took matters into her own hands - using her cell phone to call her son in another country to send me an email knowing that I would be on my computer to recieve it and let her in. Technology is pretty crazy these days. We are all plugged in.
