OK, you know you’re too immersed in a digital world when you’re doing something that has been done manually for centuries – and can only be done manually – and your brain tries to behave as if it’s sitting in front of the computer. This just happened to me:
I was putting away my laundry and a t-shirt which was folded (perfectly, of course) dropped off the top of the pile as I walked to my dresser. This amazingly folded article of clothing became unraveled and started to tumble to the floor. No word of a lie, my brain thought “CTRL – Z”.
(for those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, it’s a keyboard shortcut – pressing the “Ctrl” key at the same time as “z” – that performs a very special action: UNDO)
