Do it if you want to — just don’t be proud of it.
I phoned my cousin Mike yesterday to make arrangements for dinner. We were about to compare calendars and I was stalling while Outlook came up on my machine. Mike laughed. He was ready. All he needed was a date book and a pen. He laughed and said — “I’m 51 and I still use a date book.”
Of course, as always happens whenever there’s a challenge like this — Outlook took it’s sweet time loading. Actually, it hung for a minute, as if to prove the triumph of high over low tech. Mike took the moment to gloat. So he should. And it’s okay. In this circumstance, keeping track of a few social engagements — an electronic calendar is overkill.
