My almost seven year-old grandson got his first personal email address last week. He made up his own address because apparently, he feels that he is the “Legoking” of the world. I had to smile when he sent his first official email to Papak and Nana:
that,s what,s going up
I remember when I got my first personal email address. This is a true story. Let me just put this in context – it was a long time ago!
I had absolutely no idea about email addresses so when asked what I wanted, I quickly chose “[email protected]”. I actually thought that everyone’s address was yourfirstandmiddlename and then you add @hotmail.com. Really. Didn’t everybody put their email addresses together this way? Chris laughs whenever he hears that story because “nobody else has ever thought that way.”
PS. I just want to add that my technological knowledge has increased since that day…but if Chris was here, he most likely would add to that, “not by too much!”
